Elaine Cameron-Weir’s sculptures blend ephemeral elements like flame, smell, and light with materials including metal, glass, concrete, and stone. They can resemble surgical tools, lab apparatus, torture devices, fetish instruments, military equipment, or medieval armor, balancing protection, pleasure, and suffering in an uneasy way. Element imprints of body traces serve to heighten the physical impression of the works.
