Produced by Forma
This limited-edition artwork, created by renowned British artist Cerith Wyn Evans, incorporates two high-quality photographic prints, set in an elegant double-sided glazed structure rising from a sleekly lacquered black plinth.
Signed and numbered by the artist, this free-standing print was produced as a special legacy of Wyn Evans’ large-scale outdoor work at the Centre Point tower in the heart of London.
Early in 2004, Forma commissioned Wyn Evans to make a new outdoor piece, Meanwhile…across town, a subtle yet surprisingly spectacular invasion of the social fabric of the City. Combining two of the media in which the artist had worked previously – neon lighting and Morse code – the work transmitted a message across central London using the letters ‘I’ and ‘O’ of the ‘Centre Point’ neon signage. Programmed to begin at a different time each night between 14 February and31 March, the flickering letters used the archaic language of Morse Code to deliver a text by the French existentialist philosopher, Maurice Merleau Ponty [1908-1961].
This deeply intriguing work, multi-layered in its meanings and curiously resistant to easy explanation is perfectly captured in the print, which evokes the scale, atmosphere and alternately glimmering ‘O’ and ‘I’ across the top of the building's façades.
