Peter Pan's Shadows Project
Peter Pan’s Shadow is a female alter ego and symbol for the emotional muscle women must often sustain to protect what is most at risk; Black Hawks are fluidly designed for immediate and critical maneuverability towards rescue or ruin. The screens were influenced by the complex symbolism of the shadow in J.M. Barre’s Peter Pan, who alternately assigned power to light and to darkness, innocence and maturity. Peter loses his shadow; the women find, save, and restore it, beginning an alchemical narrative exploring sexuality, fear, love and violence.
