De La Warr Pavilion Curator David Rhodes talks about the Cerith Wyn Evans Exhibition in Gallery Two.

Cerith Wyn Evans
17 March – 10 June 2012

Employing Cerith Wyn Evan’s ongoing investigation of architecture as a starting point and specifically curated as a response to the De La Warr Pavilion, this exhibition consists of three major installations and smaller new works dispersed throughout the building.

Taking the entire Pavilion as an opportunity for installation, including our two gallery spaces and the roof-terrace, the exhibition also provides the impetus for a wider programme of related live art, music, performance and film during the season.

Visitors will see the De La Warr Pavilion’s Gallery spaces stripped back so that they are undivided for the first time. With all of the windows revealed the installation in Gallery 1 explores the relationship between manmade and natural light, returning the building’s structure to its original purpose – as a space for visitors to experience and enjoy.

Moving up through the building, Wyn Evans' recent spectacular light/heat column installation, S=U=P=E=R=S=T=R=U=C=T=U=R=E ('Trace me back to some loud, shallow, chill, underlying motive’s overspill…') 2010, is installed in Gallery 2 to create an intensely glamorous environment with toxic overtones.

On the rooftop will be a new text firework installation.
Described by the artist as “a love letter to the building”, this special exhibition embodies recurrent themes within Evan’s art: code, language, text and an interrogation of aesthetics.
