Working predominantly in film and installation, British artist Ceal Floyer addresses notions of the uncanny, the humorous, and the absurd through deceptively simple means in her practice. She creates scenarios and situations that encourage viewers to do a double take and look more closely at the details, which reveal the poetry inherent in the everyday. In her work Door (1995), for example, an empty slide projector is aimed at the bottom of a door to give the appearance of light coming through from the other side. Floyer’s Aspen Art Museum exhibition, which marks the artist’s second major solo museum show in the United States, features a selection of works spanning from 1993–2015.
