Ombre refers to the shadow, a term introduced by psychoanalyst Carl G. Jung as the dark aspects of our beings which are often unconscious, repressed and denied. I interpreted this concept through five artworks which, by their visual and material qualities, confront the spectator with shadow co-related aspects.
