Ceal Floyer

B.C. Binning Gallery

An installation view of a work titled Watercolour by Ceal Floyer. A CRT TV installed on a white pedestal displays a surface of a white screen illuminated in red.

Ceal Floyer's art practice has developed out of a playful approach to the tenets of minimalist sculp­ture. Using familiar objects and common figures of speech, she upends conventional meanings, creating works that are both elegant and absurd. This exhi­bition will include new works created especially for the Contemporary Art Gallery. Draft will focus on a specific, though oblique, aspect of the gallery space. Stereo plays on the expectations announced by commonplace events. Trash takes a banal computer icon and invests it with literal and metaphorical power wor­thy of Beckett.


Ceal Floyer has an extensive exhibition his­tory, having exhibited at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; CCA, Berkeley, California; Institute of Visual Arts, Milwaukee; Kunsthalle Bern; and City Racing, London.
