Starting his artistic career as a filmmaker, Wyn Evans gained acclaim for his experimental films before turning, in the 1990s, to sculptures, installations, photographs and performative modern art interventions that focus on language and perception.

His concept-driven approach, and especially the interrelation between language and visual perception, alludes to ground-breaking artist Marchel Duchamp whose work Wyn Evans often references both formally and conceptually. In fact, the title of the art exhibition, “….the Illuminating Gas”, takes its name from Duchamp’s final contemporary art.

The art installation works on display at Pirelli HangarBicocca also span a 20-year period, implying that everything in the exhibition, from the smallest twist of the neon sculptures to the rhythm of the sound installations, serves a purpose.
