A former assistant to filmmaker Derek Jarman and a straight-up star in one of the very earliest issues of i-D, Cerith Wyn Evans is a conceptual artist working in film, installation, photography, sculptures and text. Since the 90s, his work has focused on language and perception, as well as a precise, conceptual clarity that is often developed out of the context of the exhibition site or its history. In 2003 he represented Wales in the 50th Venice Biennale, and has also participated in the Istanbul Biennial (2005), Yokohama Triennale (2008) and Aichi Triennale (2010). In 2009 Cerith collaborated with Florian Hecker on No Night No Day at the 53rd Venice Biennale. Recent solo exhibitions include Kunsthaus Graz (2005), Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2006), MUSAC, Leon (2008), Inverleith House, Edinburgh (2009) and Tramway, Glasgow (2009). Cerith lives and works in London.
