English artist Ceal Floyer (b. 1968) has attracted much attention in the international art world for works that play on the functionality of everyday and manmade objects in our surrounding environment. Her work which is extremely-precise, delicate and subtle, pushes our consciousness and awakens us. A disconnected and unpowered light bulb that hangs from the ceiling is lit up from four sides by four slide projectors in the work Light (1994), the work Monochrome Till Receipt (White) (1999) is a shopping receipt mounted on the wall and contains products from a nearby shop, which upon closer inspection, all appear to be white (facial cream, milk, salt, sugar, toothpaste, cotton, mozzarella, and so on). Underlying humor is present in many of her works, the titles an integral part of the work, which often deal with the ambiguity of words and language.

The work Garbage Bag exhibited at Sequences IX  is from 1996. A black garbage bag, filled with the air of the room in which it is located and closed with a twist tie, is placed at the exit of the room.

Ceal Floyer has exhibited twice before in Iceland, in Gallerí Gangur (The Corridor) during Reykjavík Arts Festival 2002 and in Safn in 2006.
