Romeo and Juliet
This is a different approaching of a moment from the story of Romeo and Juliet.
Forget the shadow. See just the sculpture. On the sculpture you can see Romeo, who excists and has gone to Juliet’s garden (you can notice some flowers and various other garden decorations) and he is looking for her. But he is looking for her desperately because it’s the moment of the story that he knows that Juliet is dead. She does not exist, in his mind, as a natural person, but she is only a thought. That’s why Juliet appears only on the shadow. Intangible – immaterial. And, she has this strange shape because in his mind he has begun to disappear (parts of her are missing).
Juliet looks angry because she is not dead but she took the medicine that makes her look dead and is waiting for him save her… But Romeo has the wrong information. Romeo on the other hand, in the shadows has been made smaller (both in size and age) in order to look young to manage this situation. He feels despair… Like a child …
