Ceal Floyer (b. 1966) is an internationally known British conceptual artist. Characterised by a clear, minimalistically reduced formal language, her fascinating works are at the same time permeated with subtle irony. The relationship to language reveals itself as a central element of her installations involving sound, light, and video as well as of her works on paper. With verbal wit and a sense of the absurd the artist turns meanings upside down. Visitors encounter humorous as well as meditative works in which Floyer ingeniously subverts everyday themes and subjects. In the seemingly negligible she opens up new ways of seeing and thinking for us.
Ceal Floyer adapts her works to the particular context – space, language, culture – of each exhibition venue. Organised in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the exhibition combines both recent and older work and has been reconceived for the Aargauer Kunsthaus.
