For the first time, the work of Canadian artist Jeremy Shaw (1977) is the subject of a monographic exhibition in France. Shaw’s exhibition—a new large scale immersive installation—is designed as “a fuzzy map of human aspirations to transcendence,’ as stated by the artist. Floating screens broadcast “exploded documentaries”, presenting dances that are something between trance and rite. The disparate videos become synchronized at certain times, the time necessary for a collective, hypnotic catharsis. In Mutations / Créations 4, the complex mechanisms of the brain are examined through a unique prism combining science and poetry.
