Like a jolt of raw, unsettling energy comes the hypnotizing new exhibition from New York City-based artist Elaine Cameron-Weir. wave form walks the earth is the artist's LA-debut at Hannah Hoffman Gallery. While only containing 6 pieces, the installation is a powerful statement, combining elements of fashion, sculpture and more to create a striking narrative.
One can't help but notice the industrial influences as steel clasps, hooks and raw materials appear frequently throughout the works. There is a clinical mood that seeps into the environment while still maintaining a very soft, delicate touch. Leather is also a primary material and the mixture of the stark white space with almost fetish undertones resonated strongly with us.
From rubber to the orthopedic jaw fixation hardware, there is something so beautifully sinister about these pieces that also make you a little uneasy. The more sculptural curtain like works and the steel barrel that looks like an IV could be survival necessities from a twisted future laboratory.
Overall this is a great exhibition from an exciting emerging artist which hits on so many of our favorite notes. On view now through November 22nd at Hannah Hoffman Gallery, Los Angeles. For more visit: http://hannahhoffmangallery.com
