Elaine Cameron-Weir, ‘man has never been alone in the universe but is being constantly revisited by himself from the future in his renewed form via evolutionary time travel. Cryptomnesia occurs when a forgotten memory returns without it being recognized as such by the subject, who believes it is something new and original. He began to have a second recurring dream in which he was a woman, an artist.’, 2015, Rodolphe Janssen

About Elaine Cameron-Weir

Sculptor, painter, and installation artist Elaine Cameron-Weir uses materials ranging from wood, concrete, and plaster to marble, brass, and acrylic on canvas, producing objects and wall works that riff on 20th-century art while alluding to science fiction and an imagined future. Weir’s body of work has also included sequenced cast metal slabs, whose uneven surfaces and cracked edges evidence process and recall artists such as Eva Hesse and Richard Serra. Her 12-foot houseplant Palm (2012) is constructed entirely of brass, while Times Zones Radio Waves (2012), a bamboo-like structure composed of alternating metals, features stalks that converge into antennae.
