Cerith Wyn Evans Has an Eye on Duchamp, Mike Pinnington, δημοσίευση στο ArtReview [4/1/2023]
The artist’s new show at Mostyn, Llandudno embraces serendipities that reflect on the world and create spaces in which we may consider it
In this homecoming of sorts, the Llanelli-born Cerith Wyn Evans has been given free rein, his work occupying all of Mostyn’s available spaces. Those familiar with his work – addressing language and perception through sculpture, photography, film and text – will expect the largescale neon pieces for which he is best known and the tall led columns, here suspended to hover neatly above the floor. Anticipation and encounter are rarely the same. These sculptures dominate your visual field; their impact matched by their intricacy. One such piece is reflected in another work some will hear before they see. The glass panels of Pli S=E=L=O=N Pli (2020) have been transformed into speakers, from which a piano composition (performed by Wyn Evans) is heard. The aural effect verges on white noise; like trying to tune the sweet spot of a local radio station, forever dipping in and out of the ether.
