Cerith Wyn Evans

Cerith Wyn Evans - Cerith Wyn Evans
A comprehensive overview of the artist's body of work.
The Welsh artist Cerith Wyn Evans eludes easy categorization: in the mid-eighties, he worked as an assistant to the film director Derek Jarman, making both experimental films and music videos for pop bands such as The Smiths and The Fall; he also was a tutor for six years at the Architectural Association. During the 1990s, he consolidated an international reputation as an artist unafraid to embrace highly complex conceptual issues of communication and perception, with dense textual references invariably spliced with a poetically tongue- in-cheek dandyism, whether the writings of William Blake flashed in Morse code off a disco ball; a homage to Pasolini written in fireworks or the cultivation of hybrid orchids in a Parisian gallery, nourished by the artist's own urine.
Born 1958 in Llanelli, Wales, Cerith Wyn Evans lives and works in London.
Edited by Daniel Buchholz, Christopher Müller, and Nicolaus Schafhausen.
Texts by Julie Ault, Juliane Rebentisch, Andreas Spiegl, Jan Verwoert; interview by Manfred Hermes.
