Cerith Wyn Evans

Born in 1958, in Llanelli (United Kingdom)

Lives and works in London (United Kingdom)

First and foremost a film-maker and video artist, Cerith Wyn Evans began making sculptures and visual and sound installations in the 1990s, mainly based on the themes of language and perception.

Drawings on references to cinema, literature and art history, his works feature neon lights, photographs, musical instruments and even fireworks, spatialising sounds and hovering between the material and immaterial.
