Cerith Wyn Evans — Equals — 倫敦 英國

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is proud to present “equals”, a new edition by Cerith Wyn Evans along with longterm trusted neon-fabricator, Dusty Springfield, produced in blue argon. Wyn Evans has translated into neon the Unicode symbol ‘=‘ elongating it horizontally in a manner that suggests the alteration of its universal codification. Through this simple intervention, the definitive concept of equivalency is made unstable, and open. This work could be compared to aspects of concrete poetry, where the spatial and visual qualities of a sign become as important, and meaningful, as what it signifies.
