At 27 years old, Central Saint Martin's graduate Harley Weir has quickly made a name for herself in the world of fashion photography, with covers and editorials for I-D, Dazed and Vogue as well as campaigns for the likes of Calvin Klein, Proenza Schuler, and Alexander Mcqueen. Opening December 15th and running until February 19th at Amsterdam's renowned Foam gallery, Boundries will feature a wide range of the artist's work including both commissioned/published work as well as unseen and more personal photographs. Find more information below and at Foam's website and be sure to stop by if you are in Amsterdam.
Close to the skin of her objects, Weir’s intimate approach is what marks her work in any context, be it a border zone in a politically charged area, or in a room with a model. The title of this exhibition refers to what is ultimately dissolved in the work of Harley Weir. But even as she crosses the lines of what usually holds people apart, on personal as well as political levels she is not out to make any statements. The exhibition therefore reads as a visual poem, open to interpretation.
