at The Common
"Martin Creed likes opposites. On and off, open and closed, big and small, in and out, light and dark — versions of something and nothing. His work often sets up extremes and by doing so he opens up the space in between. Utilising commonplace materials from copy paper and cardboard boxes to dining room tables and office chairs, he presents the spectrum of possibilities we are offered every day and highlights the absurdity that can be found in the ordinary. Creed’s simple gestures often achieve dramatic results, and although not always immediately obvious, his approach to objects and materials can change the viewer’s idea of them forever."
