Ceal Floyer, Light Switch 1992

Ceal Floyer’s installations are often inconspicuous or unassuming but make sophisticated use of a number of strategies from such art historical precedents as the readymades of Duchamp and conceptual and minimalist art of the 1960s. Light Switch, one of Floyer’s early works, is a colour photographic slide image of a light switch, projected to scale on a wall at the height one would expect to find a switch in a domestic setting.

Her work orientates around encouraging the viewer to consider something beyond what is presented to them.
