Martin Creed at Hauser & Wirth Zurich

Hauser & Wirth, Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, Zurich, Switzerland

Hauser & Wirth Zürich is pleased to present an exhibition of new work from Martin Creed, which opens on 29 August 2015. Featuring works made in wood, plastic, neon, wool, canvas and carpet tiles, the exhibition highlights Creed’s innovative approach to a broad range of materials and his ongoing fascination with the commonplace.

For Creed, there is no border between life and art. His approach means that he can use any form of expression or media, since the key element for him is the process of creation – in his words, ‘trying to live life better’. Frequently he will make works that develop out of a set of instructions or rules he imposes on himself. Seeing what happens when certain components are tied down is typical of the playful spirit in which he lets his ideas develop. For instance, in a work such as ‘Work No. 2209 Woman with dog at a table’ (2015), Creed painted without a visual source, using only the verbal cues from listening to someone else describing a photograph.
