Kevin van Braak, Too Many Shadows

“Too Many Shadows” is the poster that accompanied the exhibition of Kevin van Braak at Sismógrafo, whose main installation featured a puppet theater produced in Indonesia. Printed in artisanal silkscreen, using different pairs of colors in a vertical gradient, the poster’s intention was to bring to the street that cultural and popular expression of the Far East. Like the Balinese puppets, painted in colors on the leather, but only seen in the performances as shadows, the poster gives color to the lines of the drawings made by Kroko, one of the colaborators of the Dutch artist, thus contrasting with the sensitive issue of the show: an episode occurred during World War II.
