Jeremy Shaw, born in North Vancouver, lives and works in Berlin. He works in a variety of media to explore altered states and the cultural and scientific practices that aspire to map transcendental experience. Often combining and amplifying strategies of verité filmmaking, conceptual art, music video and scientific research, he creates a post-documentary space that complicates expectations of the moving image as a form of testimony. Works by Jeremy Shaw are held in public collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Tate Modern, London. He has been featured in international surveys such as the 57th Venice Biennale, and Manifesta 11, Zurich.
