This title provides a fascinating and insightful overview of the career of the 2001 Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed.
Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his economy of means, Slade School of Art trained Creed (b. 1968) creates sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music, and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life.
Fourteen seminal works span more than a decade of creation and provide an eye-popping overview of the career of the 2001 Turner Prize winner.
An original essay by art scholar Briony Fer looks at the overriding tendency toward repetition and seriality that marks Creed's work, whereby he recalls and transforms the work of an earlier generation of artists such as Eva Hesse, Dan Flavin and Agnes Martin.
