Ceal Floyer


The art of Ceal Floyer (b. 1968 in Karachi, living and working in Berlin) understands its motifs and media in their literal form. The cost of materials is minimal and the results are most surprising in their simplicity. She often works with projections, but her work can also be based on objects or sound or performance. The artist’s work is about the visualization of an idea, which reveals itself in its radically rational implementation and playfully displays conceptual ambiguities. She was awarded the Nam June Paik Award (2009) and the National Gallery Prize for Young Art, Berlin (2007). Her works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions, including Kunstmuseum Bonn (2015); Museion, Bolzano (2014); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt/Main (2014); Kabinett für Aktuelle Kunst, Bremerhaven (2013); dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel (2012); DHC/ART, Montreal (2011); MOCA, Miami (2010); 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2009); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2009); Swiss Institute, New York (2006); Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (2001).
Puzzled, her edition for Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, consists of a 56-piece puzzle, the motif displaying its own jumbled pieces.
