Minnie Weisz is a Photographic Artist. An image maker working in the medium of analogue photography, still and moving image within the context of social documentary and site-responsive narratives.
The finest specimens of fossilized duration concretized as a result of long sojourn, are to be found in and through space. The unconscious abides. Bachelard The Poetics of Space.
An interest in the identity of spaces, creating pictures and films in abandoned warehouses, tenement flats, from the derelict to the domestic in London and across Europe. A journey through interior spaces continues. Weisz has been turning buildings inside out since 2006. Each space is witness to history and the passage of time. Meditations of memory of place and connection, family and home. Each image a conversation between the present and the past and a past in the present; interior and exterior worlds seem to collide, merging and emerging, views become magnified, falling within and between time. Space borders a threshold between the real and the imagined, dream and reality?
