Martin Creed

Martin Creed

This catalogue accompanies Martin Creed’s solo exhibition at Ikon.

Involving a wide range of media, including film, sculpture, sound installation, paintings and drawings, it is Creed’s most comprehensive and ambitious exhibition to date.

Whilst Creed’s work can seem abstract and conceptual, in interviews the artist reveals a sensitive, thoughtful side and an artistic ambition continually confounded by a deep insecurity about what to make and whether it is worthwhile. His work is often a small intervention in the world, making use of existing materials or situations rather than bringing new material into the world.

This catalogue critically considers all aspects of Creed’s oeuvre – video, sculpture, painting, neons and ready mades, from his Sick Film to stacked bean bags by way of his famous Work No. 126 : A Sheet of paper crumpled into a ball.
