This solo exhibition curated by Jeffrey Shaw at Centre des Arts Enghien-les-Bains, France presented a selected overview of his major installations from 1987 to 2018. The works shown were Heavens Gate (1987), Legible City (1989-91), Golden Calf (1994/2019), Fall Again, Fall Better (2012) and Recombinatorial Poetry Wheel (2018). This choice and its scenography was also made in response to the specific architectural layout of this arts center.
As well as the above works the exhibition also featured a three channel interactive installation of Jeffrey Shaw's Compendium that was co-authored with Raphael Chau. In this installation the entirety of works in the Compendium were divided into three thematic groups so as to create a triptych of chance conjunctions as visitors explored each set on three side-by-side projected screens.
