Event Details

The Polygon Gallery presents the North American premiere of Jeremy Shaw’s Phase Shifting Index from June 23–Sept. 24, 2023. Created for a solo exhibition at the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the immersive seven-channel video installation is Shaw’s most ambitious project to date. Phase Shifting Index uses various outmoded 20th-century media — from 16mm film to Hi-8 video tape — to depict an imagined future in which human beliefs and survival are at stake. Seven distinct subcultures are seen engaging in embodied, movement-based belief systems that range from modern dance to hardcore punk skanking. Their gestures coalesce in synchronized movement before dissolving into sound and light. The exhibition marks the North Vancouver-born artist’s return to the West Coast
