Cerith Wyn Evans: Exterior (night)...
Cerith Wyn Evans
Exterior (night)... 2014
12.9cm x 93.8cm
Edition of 30, plus 2 APs
To accompany his exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Cerith Wyn Evans has created a new neon Limited Edition. The text Exterior (night)... is reversed so that it is only possible to read it ‘correctly’ in the reflection of a polished surface, such as a window at night. Evoking the language used in scripts to set the scene of a play, the work implies that the action happening in the room where it is situated is its true focus. 'A subtitle to everyday life'.
