Publication Date 2014
Description The official catalogue to accompany the major retrospective Martin Creed: What’s the point of it? at Hayward Gallery, London, 29 January – 27 April 2014. The most comprehensive collection of Creed’s work, spanning his entire career, including never-before published works, new photography and special commissions being produced exclusively for the Hayward Gallery exhibition. Featuring text from award-winning comedian and broadcaster Bill Bailey, music and popular culture journalist Paul Morley, art historian Joachim Pissarro and Hayward curator Cliff Lauson. Martin Creed has been recognised internationally for his conceptually driven art – at once playful, thought-provoking and profoundly ambiguous. Embracing an exceptionally wide array of artistic media, from sculpture and painting to music and dance, his work transforms common materials and actions into surprising meditations on existence, choice, perception and the invisible structures that shape our everyday experience. Martin Creed: What’s the point of it? accompanies the first major survey of Creed’s work at the Hayward Gallery, London. Outstanding in scope, design and scholarship, this essential volume encompasses the full range and scale of the artist’s work, from paintings, video projections and extravagant room-sized installations to subtle interventions, sculptures and performances. Featuring a number of newly commissioned essays from music journalist Paul Morley, art historian Joachim Pissarro, Hayward Gallery curator Cliff Lauson, as well as a unique contribution by performer Bill Bailey, Martin Creed: What’s the point of it? offers an essential insight into the work of one of the world’s most innovative living artists.
