Ceal Floyer’s minimalist works can be simple and familiar objects whose meanings are parlayed into something more complicated. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Well, in the infinite world of the rolodex, it certainly is hard to tell. Floyer’s sense of humour is apparent throughout her work, as in Light Switch, a projection of such an object on a wall where one would normally be – the light has been switched, no? In Nail-Biting Performance, Floyer stands as though ready to conduct an orchestra, but bites her nails instead. Till I Get It Right is a sound installation that plays the Tammy Wynette song of the same name repeatedly, mimicking the lyrics, an endless loop of determination.
