Throughout the 1990s Hayley Newman’s unique performance work has been deliberately varied; working with sound, text and photography both in collaboration and alone she has evolved a practice, that is both expressive and analytical of performance strategies and schema.

Cerith Wyn Evans
Cerith Wyn Evans graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1984. He began his career as a video and filmmaker and worked as an assistant to the filmmaker Derek Jarman. During the 1980s Wyn Evans made short experimental films that have been screened in Britain and abroad. He also collaborated with choreographer Michael Clark.
In the early 1990s, Wyn Evans began making sculpture and installation. His work deals with the phenomenology of time, language and perception. His first solo exhibition was held at White Cube in 1996, for which he created an installation entitled 'Inverse, Reverse, Perverse' consisting of a large concave mirror that inverted and radically distorted the viewer's reflection, producing a disturbing self-portrait. Wyn Evans employs a variety of media to explore his ideas on perception and conceptual limits ranging from neon, firework texts, film, photography and sculpture.
Wyn Evans has exhibited extensively in Europe and America including, in 1995, the Hayward Gallery, London, and The British School at Rome while other solo exhibitions have included Deitch Projects in New York (1997). More recently, Wyn Evans has had solo shows at the Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland (2001) and Georg Kargl, Vienna (2001). He presented his acclaimed work 'Cleave 00' for the first time as part of the Art Now series at Tate Britain in 2000 and followed this with 'Cleave 02' in Documenta XI, Kassel in 2002. Wyn Evans also formed part of the touring exhibition 'The British Art Show' in 2000.
