The Life and Death of a Shadow

The Life and Death of a Shadow. Artist Jumaadi created this story for the Museum of Contemporary Art exhibition, Telling Tales: Excursions in Narrative Form. Working in Sydney Australia and Yogyakarta Indonesia using Javanese shadow puppets, it is the true story of a deaf musician teaching his blind sin the art of wayang kulit, or shadow puppetry. “Spirits filled the living room, witnesses to this enchanted performance.”
