Shadow play

Working in hand-carved Linden wood and bronze, Turkish artist Yasam Sasmazer creates life-sized figures of children: her first UK exhibition is at London’s Aubin Gallery now

Illuminated Darkness features several of Sasmazer’s figures, lit to create dramatic shadows on the walls behind. According to the artist, shadows represent the darkness in our souls’ hidden side and the most frightening part of our personality.

Illuminated Darkness is at the Aubin Gallery, Redchurch St, London E2 until November 4. Details here
