Cerith Wyn Evans was born in 1958 in Wales. He lives and works in London
and has a home near Norwich. He trained at the RCA and Central St
Martins and started out as a video and film-maker. He then moved
into making short, experimental films during the 1980s. His conceptual
work uses photography, film, text, sound, sculpture and installations.
For Cerith, communicating with his audience via text and physical
messages, and achieving many possible interpretations is his goal.
He exhibits around the world in public
and private collections and has twice exhibited at the Venice Biennale.
Often his work acts as
a catalyst, by using language and communication to explore great
pivots in understanding. His firework pieces involve open-ended
texts that burn over a period of time, while flashing lights in his
sculpture send out messages in Morse code. Cerith Wyn Evans is
represented by White Cube.
