Drawn from personal experience, Shaw’s exhibition at The Exchange features two installations that address head-on the global presence and effect of terrorism and the pervasive sense of hidden powers having control over our lives.
Mother, The Air Is Blue, The Air Is Dangerous is an immersive experience using video and sound. It is a deeply personal work which offers a visceral insight into Shaw’s experience as a child in Belfast when he and his mother were caught in an IRA bombing.
Soul Snatcher Possession is a sculptural installation which portrays an ambiguous meeting of figures, the air taut with menace.
What Remains is a partnership with Anima-Mundi to present Tim Shaw’s work across two sites in Cornwall during 2017/18. Something Is Not Quite Right at Anima-Mundi, St Ives, 13 Oct – 9 Dec 2017, presented new sculptural installations, as well as a series of maquettes for Soul Snatcher Possession.
