'This work attempts to have a real effect in the world, acting as a form of spell or incantation which will 'mesmerise' the viewer. The work is a form of creation myth, a description, and perhaps even an enacting, of the coming-into-being of living and developing forms.' - Jeremy Millar / Further information
'Transforming derelict industrial areas of East London into enigmatic, alien landscapes, photographer Weir has been cultivating a different side of decay for the past few years. Abstracting forms and shapes to create skewed perspectives on abandoned industrial rot, new worlds emerge as light and colour conspire to turn ruin into rapture.' - Eli Anderson / Further information
