Graphic Project: Kiki Smith "Follow your Shadow"

The special guest of the fifth edition of Furla Art Award is the artist Kiki Smith. Two hands holding two owls, one bigger and one smaller, and the writing Follow your Shadow below. This is the graphic image created by the artist to represent the fifth edition of Furla Art Award. Follow your Shadow is the impossible reflection of a shadow coming before the thing it itself belongs. It is a inverse perspective, a priorities change, a decentralization, so what appears small and distant becomes essential, big and incredibly close.
