What is the Point?

Have you ever asked yourself 'what's the point of it all?' I am sure most of us have at some stage in our lives and it appears that Turner Prize winner, Martin Creed has reached that stage. In his first major exhibition. this thought-provoking artist creates surprising meditations about existence and the invisible structures that shape our lives.

Martin Creed was born in Wakefield in 1968, but is now based in London. He has a minimalist style that strips out all the unnecessary elements, leaving nothing but the stark wit and bare humour found in everyday objects and actions.

What's The Point? runs between the 29th January - 27th April in the Haywood Gallery at the Southbank Centre, and cots 11 to book. There will be many accompanying events, such as Martin Creed Day, which is a free collaborative art session for children, which is led by Creed himself.

Creed's work features more than physical pieces of art, but also explores music and performance. On the 10th February, there will be a children's choir performing Singing Lift throughout the day, while in March, he will be sharing his exploration of Bach in a workshop and concert.

Finally, on the 8th April, you can experience a unique ballet choreographed by Creed, in which dance moves are deconstructed, rewound, stopped, and started to a live band.
