Ordet presents Tracer Recordings, the first solo exhibition in Italy of the visual artist Jeremy Shaw.
Shaw’s work reveals his interest in altered states and the wide spectrum of their manifestations through different media, from analog photography to multichannel video installations.
The exhibition features installations in movement but without sound, silent presence that disorient the viewer.
Among the works on view: Cathartic Illustrations, a new body of silkscreen works, Exorcism in Essex. 15-4-75 (2020) from the Towards Universal Pattern Recognition series — an archival photograph filtered through a large prism frame reflecting the framed reception of the image and of ourselves — and
This Transition Will Never End (2008-ongoing), a sequence of vortexes—footage taken from low budget movies, cult TV series, and Hollywood classics—demonstrating how the repetition of this phenomenon became a visual metaphor, used to represent a transition between two realities or a slippage of time.
