Cerith Wyn Evans

8 August–27 October 2014

Welsh conceptual artist Cerith Wyn Evans is engaged by questions of language, perception, and transmission. His works mix the scientific, the philosophical, and the poetic. In this show, three works conjure with the infinite in different ways: a neon sign represents a Möbius Strip (a twisted loop, with an endless single surface), a cluster of mirror-clad plinths generates infinite reflections of reflections, and a text explains that astronomers imagined dust spots on their photographs to be faint stars millions of light years away. Wyn Evans began his career by assisting filmmaker Derek Jarman, before making his own short, experimental films in the 1980s.
