Cerith Wyn Evans first came to attention in the 1980s as an experimental filmmaker and collaborator across artistic disciplines, including dance and performance. Subsequently he has expanded his approach to incorporate sculpture. His works combine ideas and influences from art, history, philosophy and science in order to transform our perception of the world around us. He is perhaps best known for his elegant neon text works that mine a particular fascination with language and light. In 2017 his dazzling white neon sculpture, Forms in Space…by Light (in Time), filled the Tate Britain’s Duveen Galleries.
