Cerith Wyn Evans’ conceptual practice incorporates a wide range of media, often exploring the relation between light, text, thought and meaning – often constructing situations that are conscious of a viewer’s presence. His early works employed film and video, often creating ‘expanded cinema’ environments frequently collaborating with performers. Since the 1990s Wyn Evans’ work has explored the relationship between language, space, temporality and the interrogation of perception, characterised by formal precision and clarity often developed in relation to a particular exhibition site. Wyn Evans participated in Documenta 11 in 2002 and was the first artist to represent Wales at the Venice Biennale in 2003. In 2018 he was awarded the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture, in recognition of his significant contribution to the contemporary development of this artform.
