Forma produced Cerith Wyn Evans' 2004 public realm project Meanwhile…across town and the limited edition artwork created as a special legacy of this project.
Wyn Evans graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1984. He began his career as a video and filmmaker and worked as an assistant to the filmmaker Derek Jarman. During the 1980s he made short experimental films that have been screened in Britain and abroad. He also collaborated with choreographer Michael Clark.
In the early 1990s, Wyn Evans began making sculpture and installation. His work deals with the phenomenology of time, language and perception. His first solo exhibition was held at White Cube in 1996, for which he created an installation entitled 'Inverse, Reverse, Perverse' consisting of a large concave mirror that inverted and radically distorted the viewer's reflection, producing a disturbing self-portrait. Wyn Evans employs a variety of media to explore his ideas on perception and conceptual limits ranging from neon, firework texts, film, photography and sculpture.
Cerith Wyn Evans has exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions internationally. He has had solo exhibitions at Tate Britain, Kunsthaus Glarus and CCA Kitakyushu. In 2002 he took part in Documenta XI, Kassel in 2002 and in 2003 he represented Wales at the Venice Biennale. In 2004 he will have solo exhibitions at ARC, Paris; Camden Arts Centre, London; MIT and MFA, Boston and the Frankfurter Kunstverein.
