Description

Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his deft economy of means, Creed has produced sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life.

His work is subtle and spectacular, austere and playful – a sheet of paper crumpled into a ball, a door opening and closing, the lights going on and off, or a soundtrack inside a moving lift.

The book features a foreword by the artist and accompanying texts by Tom Eccles, Massimiliano Gioni, Germaine Greer, Matthew Higgs, Barry Humphries, Tess Jaray, Darian Leader, John O’Reilly, Colm Tóibín and others, supplemented by an exhibition history, bibliography and biography.
