In her sculpture, Elaine Cameron-Weir (b. 1985, Red Deer, Canada) grapples with questions of individual and collective human survival while also considering the potential for renewal and transformation, in states of being and forms of knowledge. She often repurposes found objects with previous scientific, medical, or military applications creating skillfully constructed, assembled forms that conjure speculative uses or ritual function.

For her exhibition at the Henry, Cameron-Weir is creating new work conceived in conversation with the dynamic double height volume of the museum’s lower level galleries. At the center of the exhibition are two human-sized metal storage cases—former military equipment used for transporting the deceased—that will serve as counterweights to open-work metal skins that rise up from the ground like levitating bodily stand-ins, creating a dynamic interplay between gravity and transcendence. Human vulnerability is a central theme across Cameron-Weir’s work and is particularly potent in the artist’s Henry exhibition, which is informed by the ways social structures and belief systems give life meaning while also arbitrating the value of individual existence.

Exhibition Dates: April 03, 2021 - September 12, 2021.

Location: Lower Level Galleries
