The Ferens is pleased to be the first associate gallery to host the Martin Creed ARTIST ROOM. The exhibition will show important works by Creed, who first came to prominence when he won the Turner Prize in 2001 with Work No. 227 The lights going on and off.
Creed is an artist and musician whose works often excite controversy by challenging our ideas about what art is. He has exhibited extensively worldwide and is renowned for his straightforward approach to making art, often using simple materials to create sculptures, installations, drawings, films, music and text. His work can be refreshing, unexpected and humorous, as well as provocative.
The exhibition will explore a range of different media including a neon sign Work No. 890 (DON’T WORRY), a twenty-one part drawing, Work No. 944, 2008, and a series of four paintings from 2011.
