Martin Creed: What's the point of it?He got all the bells ringing in the country at the same time to launch the cultural Olympic celebration in 2012, and in 2014 the Turner Prize winning artist Martin Creed is the subject of a major exhibition occupying both floors and the outdoor terraces of the Hayward Gallery. Some of Creed's earliest works from the 1990s are shown for the first time in the UK alongside his Turner Prize winning installation 'The Lights Going On and Off'. Known for his playful side, the exhibition also includes 'Work No. 319', a room half-filled with balloons, and 'Work No. 1000', a monumental print work made with broccoli. Portraits, new sculptural commissions and two performance pieces - 'Face to Face with Bach' and his ballet 'Work No. 1020' - offer a comprehensive review of the artist's work across which covers all artistic media.
