And Their Daughter, from Here I Saw What Happened, 1995-1996
Text by A. M. Weaver
Excerpt:Weems uses the agency of culture to construct political overviews of history; she is in fact a proliferator of cultural democracy – art engaged in consciousness-raising. In A Woman’s Journey she speaks in the third person of a woman that is on a journey through life and who is taking stock of the road traversed. In every aspect of her oeuvre she tells her side of the story from where she stands. Rather than literally picking up arms, her camera and her narration are her weapons. These aspects of her artistic vocabulary speak for multitudes.
