Ceal Floyer

Ceal Floyer (b. 1968, Pakistan) lives and works in Berlin. Floyer received a BFA from Goldsmiths College, London (1994). The artist’s practice comprises film and installation. Floyer’s work explores the experience of everyday situations, often challenging and inverting the function of everyday objects to the point of absurdity. As a consequence, the viewer is made to renegotiate their perception of the world around them. She won the Preis der Nationalgalerie Fur Junge Kunst, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2007) and the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany (2009). Floyer’s recent solo exhibitions include: Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aurau (2016), Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn (2015); Kolnischer Kunstverein, Cologne (2013); DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art, Montreal (2011); and Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) (2010). Recent group exhibitions include:  Lisson Gallery, London (2016); Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong (2012); and Documenta 13, Kassel (2012).
