Cerith Wyn Evans describes his exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion – a wonderful Modernist icon on the seafront at Bexhill on Sea – as ‘a love letter to the building’



Wyn Evans has filled the Pavilion with a series of installations that play on the relationship between man-made and natural light, and which culminate on the rooftop terrace with a spectacular firework display spelling words from a Jimi Hendrix lyric: ‘And if I don’t meet you no more in this world Then I’ll, I’ll meet you in the next one And don’t be late, don’t be late’. Wyn Evans began his career as a filmmaker, firstly assisting Derek Jarman and then, throughout the 1980s, making his own short experimental films. In the 1990s he came to focus more on sculpture and installation art, creating works that often include found or remembered texts from film, philosophy or literature.
