About Cerith Wyn Evans
There are no upcoming events
Cerith Wyn Evan’s artistic practice focuses on how ideas can be communicated through form. His conceptual work incorporates a diverse range of media including installation, sculpture, photography, film and text.
Wyn Evans began his career as a filmmaker producing short, experimental films and collaborative works but since the 1990s has created artworks that focus on language and perception, with a precise clarity towards their manifestation in space. His poetic work has a highly refined aesthetic, deeply informed by film, music, literature and philosophy. Visual or textual sources and ideas are often repeated across different bodies of work, an indication of his desire to keep ideas in play or to bring them back to life as raw material for future use. His works harness the potential of language to create moments of rupture and delight, where desire and reality conjoin.
Cerith Wyn Evans was born in 1958 in Llanelli, Wales and now lives and works in London.
Recent solo exhibitions include the Museo Tamayo (2018), Tate Britain Commission (2017), Museion Bolzano (2015) and Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London (2014). He has also participated in the Venice Biennale (2017, 2010, 2003), Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017), Moscow Biennial (2011), Aichi Triennale (2010), Yokohama Triennale (2008) and Istanbul Biennial (2005). He studied at Central St Martin’s School of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London.
