Museo Tamayo will present the first monographic exhibition of Cerith Wyn Evans in México, which will gather twelve pieces produced in the last ten years. From neon sculptures, kinetic and organic elements, sound pieces, and a series of Murano glass candlesticks, the exhibition seeks to trigger sensitive and temporary experiences in the viewer. Together, these elements will create an immersive environment to challenge the ideas of perception, cognition, subjectivity, and reality.

In his work, Wyn Evans creates moments of rupture within existing structures of communication, whether visual, audible or conceptual, using the ‘strategies of refraction, of juxtaposition, superimposition and contradiction, occluding and revealing’. Seeing the exhibition as an ‘experiment’ with fluid recourse to scores, maps, instructions and diagrams, he aims to question our notion of reality and cognition, perception and subjectivity, evoking new and unforeseen registers of perception.

For this exhibition at Museo Tamayo, Cerith Wyn Evans addresses the material and the immaterial through the transformative effects of light, sound and the phenomenological experience of space. Responding specifically to the architecture of the museum, the works act as catalysts, observing sight lines, creating ‘sound-lines’ traversing exhibition spaces, as if in dialogue or ‘in concert’ with each other. They create a transversal passage through different temporal episodes, evoking dimensions exploring intangible themes through a range of different media.

Wyn Evans’ artistic practice examines the communication possibilities of ideas through shape. His work in installation, sculpture, photography, and text, among other media, with a highly sophisticated aesthetic, is influenced by cinema, music, literature, and philosophy, form where he takes sources and visual or textual ideas that are often repeated in his artworks. Additionally, he tries to break down the existing communication systems by subverting the shapes of some materials or by alternating the space-time coordinates.
