Hachette UK
| /

The monograph presents a significant selection of works, from the earlier sculptures to complex monumental installations and new productions, in an overview of the career of Cerith Wyn Evans, winner of the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture in 2018. Together with exhibition views at Pirelli HangarBicocca and a series of photographs selected by the artist on the theme of light, the book includes three previously unpublished essays. The art historian Briony Fer addresses the more conceptual and material aspects of the Neon Forms (after Noh) series, the philosopher and theoretician Éric Alliez provides a broad overview of the complex references in the artist’s work, and Alexander García Düttmann captures the peculiarity of his oeuvre through a loop of different beginnings entitled False Starts. The catalogue also includes an introduction by the curators, a series of entries with detailed descriptions of all the exhibited works and an illustrated chronology of all the artist’s solo shows.
