Shadowlife is an exhibition by a group of Indigenous Australian artists – and one non-Indigenous artist – that makes use of film, photography and installation to tackle stereotypes.
Acording to curators Natalie King and Djon Mundine, "Dreaming tells us that the shadow is your soul. A person can never desert its shadow and a shadow cannot leave its human cast. Aboriginal figures that dot the historical Australian landscape carry a shadowy-halo edge of Aboriginality only seen and recognised at certain fleeting moments of intense emotional, social and spiritual exposure. Australia is full of ghosts and shadows honeycombing the historical, social and physical landscape. Shadowlife addresses these moments of intensity through the photo/filmic practices."
