Sophie Hedderwick: Swift As A Shadow

SWIFT AS A SHADOW is a multimedia show comprising large format digital prints, Polaroid collections and a video installation. Inspired by Degas’ Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, the artist explores the contentious pose of the original sculpture through photographing a contemporary ballet dancer in a series of movements. By recording light traces from LED lights sewn onto the dancer’s costume, using both kinetic and UV lights, the multi-layered images examine how the manipulation of the figure produces a sensuous art form that is not only beautiful but also challenging in its representation of female youth.
