Martin Creed, “The Back Door” at the Park Avenue Armory
“Clever, dumb, smart and stupidly gorgeous.
Whatever Creed does …he brings a joyousness, lightness
and objectivity to the task.” — The Guardian (UK)
Winner of the 2001 Turner Prize, British artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art and employing a minimalistic approach that strips away the unnecessary while preserving an abundance of wit, humor, and surprise. Crossing all media including painting, drawing, music, dance, theater, film, sculpture, fashion, and more, Creed’s practice meditates on our everyday existence and the visible and invisible structures that shape our lives
