Martin Creed – What’s the point of it?

So I went to see Martin Creed’s exhibition at the Hayward Gallery titled ‘What’s the point of it?’ at the weekend.

From the moment you step into the exhibition you’re confronted with a playground of whimsical art that is smart, funny and at it’s best made me grin like an idiot. The exhibition has it’s obvious highlights like Creed’s Mothers Spindle above or the highly entertaining ‘Work No 200, Balloon Room’, but throughout the exhibition there are some really great simplistic touches that catch and ensnare the minds eye in equal measure.

I particularly liked the huge striped wall using different graphic adhesive tapes, shown above, but then again I would wouldn’t I. So do you eyes & mind a favour and pop along if you have a spare hour or two.

Enjoy!
