Brilliant Ideas: Martin Creed
Bloomberg’s Brilliant Ideas looks at the most exciting and acclaimed artists at work in the world today. We will feature top names and up-and-coming artists, the stars of tomorrow; painters, sculptors, digital, conceptual and performance artists, photographers, land and street artists. Bloomberg TV has covered the globe to talk with these artists in their studios and exhibition points. Through intimate conversations we reveal their Brilliant Ideas.
Martin Creed is many things: a painter, performance artist, filmmaker, sculptor, and musician. His work is deadly serious and funny too. He caused a furor when he won the prestigious Turner Prize for an empty room with the lights going on and off. He has exhibited a crumpled up piece of paper, a piece of Blu-Tack, live runners at Tate Britain and got the British nation to perform a mass act of ringing bells simultaneously. He has a new work called “Understanding” overlooking Manhattan. All his work invites audiences to consider everyday objects and ways of thinking in new ways. Martin is also inventive, funny, a dynamo of new ideas.
