Working primarily in the moving image and installation, Grace Weir is concerned with aligning a lived experience of the world with conceptual knowledge and theory. Interested in the moment of definition or resolution, her work explores the dynamic of practice and representation at the levels where issues of identity and temporality coincide.

One particular area of Weir’s work is her unique approach to research, based on a series of conversations and experiments with scientists, philosophers and practitioners from other disciplines. Focusing on the slippages between the conceptual and experiential in different fields of enquiry, Weir probes the nature of a fixed identity
and these questions are underpinned by the theories under her scrutiny, whether it is relativity, intentionality, the duality of light or philosophies of time, film and the history of art.

Creating a dialogue between the conceptual nature of her ideas and
the ways in which thinking is material, the works frequently refer to the act of making and the mediums in which they are made, including where time itself forms the work. The resulting work ranges from structural cinematic works and installations to experimental videos, lecture-performances and web projects.
Grace Weir represented Ireland at the 49th International Venice Biennale and has exhibited widely nationally and internationally. She was recently Artist-in-Residence in the School Of Physics, Trinity College Dublin and showed in a solo exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2015-2016.
