Ceal Floyer’s sound installation ‘Til I get it Right seems to be a comment on the artist’s strive for perfection. It’s a loop that is created from a song of the same title by the American country music singer-songwriter Tammy Wynette. Ceal Floyer just used the lines “I’ll just keep on” and “‘Til I Get It Right,” to create an endless mantra-like soundtrack.
Ceal Floyer was born in 1968 and lives in Berlin. She has had solo exhibitions at DHC, Montreal (2011), MOCA, Miami (2010), KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2009), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2009), the Swiss Institute, New York (2006), and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (2001), and has participated in the Biennale di Venezia (2009). Floyer has received the Nam June Paik Award (2009) and the Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst, Berlin (2007).
