Cast No Shadow (Western Union Series No.1)

As an innovative film and video artist, Isaac Julien creates multi-screen installations which explore issues including class, cultural history, geopolitics and identity. Nominated for the Turner Prize in 2001, Julien’s practice has made a strong impact on the contemporary art landscape. This work, Cast No Shadow (Western Union Series No.1) relates to the artist’s multimedia installation Western Union: Small Boats (2007), which blurs the line between the genres of fiction, documentary and fantasy to address latter-day migrations and journeys from Africa. As the silhouetted figure stares out from the dark shadows towards the sun-drenched cliffs and the rolling sea, a haunting sense of memory, desire and longing is evoked.
