Victor Burgin has made contributions as an artist and cultural theorist for more than three decades. His writings on general issues such as photographic, psychoanalytic and cultural theory are noted for their lucidity, compactness and reason. In contrast, the photographs and videos that Burgin creates as an image-maker are paradoxical and constitute an inquiry into the structure of meaning in contemporary society. "Shadowed" continues Burgin's preoccupation, in writing and video installations, with the intrication of physical and psychical space - of particular concern is the haunting of the built environment by history, memory and fantasy. The book contains an essay by Anthony Vidler as well as text by Victor Burgin and colour reproductions of seven of Burgin's recent video works.
