Born 1958, Llanelli (GB). Lives and works in London (GB)

Cerith Wyn Evans began his career as a film maker, producing short experimental films in the late 1970s. Since the 1990s his work has been characterised by its focus on language and its articulation in space through the nuances of perception, as well as a precise conceptual clarity. Wyn Evans installations work like catalysts, reservoirs of possible meaning that can unravel into many discursive journeys. His work has a highly refined aesthetic that is often informed by his magpie like approach to influences from film, music, literature, and philosophy, which shape and colour his practice.

Wyn Evans graduated from St Martin’s School of Art, London, in 1980 with Bachelor of Fine Arts. In 1984 he received a Master of Fine Arts in film and video from the Royal College of Art, London. Wyn Evans has exhibited extensively in international exhibitions including documenta 11, Kassel (2002); the 9th Istanbul Biennial, (2005); the Yokohama Trienniale (2008); and the NGV Triennial, Melbourne (2021). In 2018 Wyn Evans was awarded the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture.
