Dark MOFO edition

Jeremy Shaw explores altered mental states, focusing on the aesthetic and scientific valences of psychedelics. The Berlin-based Canadian artist and film-maker works primarily in video and Kirlian photography—a technique used to capture electrical discharges.

Shaw’s work hints at a visual affinity between the art and science of drug research and highlights the difficulty of creating an optic record of an experience, especially one beyond the usual register.

For this special SOCA Dark Mofo edition of Art Forum, Shaw will be in conversation to discuss his practice and recent work Liminals, which continues his fascination with movement, altered states and transcendental experience. Liminals will be exhibited as part of Dark Mofo 2018.

Please note that this Arts Forum will be held on Saturday 16 June | 3pm
