Martin Creed: Works presents the first comprehensive survey of the work and career of Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed. Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his deft economy of means, Creed has produced sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life.
This extensive volume documents more than 700 works produced over twenty years, selected by the artist himself. Always in search of the essential nature of things, Creed uses the simplest materials to create a world in which reality appears transformed by conceptual rules, as well as by the unexpected breaking of those rules. His work is simultaneously subtle and spectacular, austere and playful whether it be a sheet of paper crumpled into a ball, a protrusion from the wall, a door opening and closing, the lights going on and off, or a soundtrack inside a moving lift.
The book features a foreword by the artist and accompanying texts by Germaine Greer, Darian Leader, Colm Tóibín and others, supplemented by an exhibition history, bibliography and biography.
