Cerith Wyn Evans creates work in a variety of media including neon, sound, photography and collage. Wyn Evans’s chosen medium; however, always exists at a remove from the central concerns of his work. An original set of references serves as the basis of his practice – the mediation resulting in a series of exhibited traces; these heavily mediated objects and installations are counterintuitively elegant, a consequence of being graced by the artist’s extremely generous intelligence, melancholy and wit.

His recent solo exhibitions include Museion, Bolzano (2015); Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London (2014); Kunsthall Bergen, Norway (2011); Casa Luis Barragán, Mexico City (2010); The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (2008); Musée d’art moderne de la ville de Paris (2006); with participation in group exhibitions including, Aichi Triennale (2010); a collaborative participation with Florian Hecker in the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); “The Kaleidoscopic Eye: Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Collection” at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2009); and the Yokohama Triennale (2008).
