Martin Creed at the Hayward Gallery

Martin_Creed_Work_no_200_Spindle

 

A survey of Martin Creed’s playful, thought-provoking art is on view at the Hayward Gallery in London until 27 April 2014. Over the past two and a half decades Scottish artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art.

Winner of the 2001 Turner Prize, Creed is famous for his minimalistic approach that strips away the unnecessary, but preserves an abundance of wit, humour and surprise. Crossing all artistic media and including music, his art transforms everyday materials and actions into surprising meditations on existence and the invisible structures that shape our lives.

This exhibition will be the first major survey of Martin Creed’s work, spanning its most minimal moments and extravagant room-sized installations.
