From the Publisher:
This elegant volume accompanies the exhibition Martin Creed: Collected Works held at the Rennie Collection at Wing Sang (Vancouver), which holds one of the world's largest collections of the British artist. Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his economy of means, Creed creates sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music, and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life. In this profusely illustrated volume fourteen seminal works - including some making their North American premiere - provide an eye-popping overview of the career of the 2001 Turner Prize winner. An original essay by scholar Briony Fer looks at the overriding tendency toward repetition and seriality that marks Creed's work, whereby he recalls and transforms the work an earlier generation of artists such as Eva Hesse, Dan Flavin and Agnes Martin.
