Jeremy Shaw

Berlin-based, Vancouver-born artist Jeremy Shaw does not show prolifically in Canada, so this institutional show provides an opportunity to see two recent international projects, as well as a new work. Variation FQ is a black-and-white 16 mm film piece begun in 2011 depicting and deconstructing the moves of transgender vogue dancer Leyomi Mizrahi. Quickeners, from 2014, is an audiovisual installation allying the mysticism of a splinter sect of Pentecostal Christians from the 1960s with current discussions on artificial intelligence. The new piece, in the CAG’s window vitrines, is a series of screenprints activated by black light.
