Grace Weir @ Laure Genillard Gallery
30 September 2017 - 18 November 2017
This exhibition, Unfolded is the first occasion Grace Weir’s recent films and installation works are being shown in London. The filmic processes Grace Weir employs take us on journeys where we witness unfolding contingencies; how her source material leads research and the decisions ensuing from these encounters with specifics; thinkers, locations, theories, archives, and objects. As viewers we are brought into constellations – processes of intersection and divergence. These decelerate and give elasticity to a feeling of history experienced as if for the first time in the present moment. Mainie Jellet, leading Irish Modernist in the early 1900s and Mary Rosse, a photographic innovator during the 1850s, are major figures in Irish history and their oeuvres are the subject of two of the works on show in this exhibition. Like many women, their contributors to knowledge and culture are little known outside very particular contexts.
