Jeremy Shaw,

Based in Berlin, Jeremy Shaw works in a variety of media to explore altered states of consciousness and the cultural and scientific practices that aspire to map transcendental experience. Maximum Horizon transforms the architecture of the CIAPV through newly commissioned sculptural works alongside immersive installations.

The exhibition

The exhibition mines the iconography of religion, science fiction and representations of the sublime, merging the meditative and the reverential to transform our perspective.

Often combining and amplifying strategies of verité filmmaking, conceptual art, music video and scientific research, Jeremy Shaw creates a post-documentary space that complicates expectations of image as a form of testimony.

Shaw has had solo exhibitions at Centre Pompidou, Paris, MoMA PS1, New York, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin, and MOCA Toronto, and been featured in international surveys such as the 57th Venice Biennale, 16th Lyon Biennale and Manifesta 11, Zurich. In 2016 he was awarded the Sobey Art Award and in 2018 was artist-in-residence at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Works by Shaw are held in public collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Tate Modern, London, and the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.

Born in North Vancouver, Canada, in 1977, Shaw lives ans works in Berlin. He is represented by Bradley Ertaskiran.

  • Evening screening – Quantification Trilogy

Friday May 24 – 8:30 pm Free Screening of three films by Jeremy Shaw at Peyrat-le-Château cinema. – Set in a time when beings are immortal and wirelessly interconnected via a central hive, Quickeners (2014, 36’23) tells the story of a syndrome that drives people to desire the same things as their human predecessors: giving sermons, singing, praying, dancing, performing rituals and trying to reach ecstatic states. – Liminals (2017, 31’16) is presented as an episode in a documentary series about marginal societies in the near future, where the inability to have faith threatens the human species with extinction. A group called “The Liminals” believe that by injecting themselves with machine DNA and reviving forgotten spiritual rituals, they can save humanity. – I Can See Forever (2018, 43’11) is conceived as a documentary TV series about a failed government experiment to create a synthesis between human and machine. The film follows 27-year-old Roderick Dale, the only known survivor of the project, who through dance claims to exist in the digital world while retaining a physical bodily presence.
