Conceptual artist Ceal Floyer is celebrated for her deft manoeuvres in everyday situations, testing the slippage between function and implication, the literal and the imagined. Working in film and installation, she reconfigures familiar objects as sources of surprise and humour. The deceptive simplicity of the work is informed by Floyer’s particular sense of humour and an awareness of the absurd. Floyer uses double-takes and shifting points of view to force the viewer to renegotiate their perception of the world.
