Martin Creed: First Major Survey A Multi Sensory Fun Fair – ArtLyst


 Depending on your mood and taste, this exhibition could either seem like a vivid, stimulating world that teems with ideas, or an infuriating nightmare. I lean towards the former. The key is maybe found in Work No. 299 (2003), a self-portrait of the man from Wakefield, with a testing grin across his face. His expression is sincere, but puckish. Creed doesn’t care if you hate his work – in fact, he’ll laugh about it if you do. It’s better to play along, and enjoy the ride. What’s the point of it? Stop asking.
