Originally presented as part of the illustrious 2014 solo exhibition What’s The Point of It? at The Hayward Gallery in London, British artist Martin Creed presents for the first time in Denmark two of his most celebrated sound works. Installed in the dressing rooms of Mads Nørgaard’s women’s department two looping sound pieces. Work No.401 Blowing a raspberry and Work No. 412 Laughing transform the intimate action of trying on clothes into an absurd and humorous sensual experience.

 

 

Martin Creed

 

Over the past 25 years, the Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed (1968- ) has embraced a variety of techniques including sculpture, painting, neon, writing, film, installation, music, dance and performance. His pieces range from compositions for symphony orchestra to architectural commissions, public monuments and dance performances. He often works directly in the gallery or museum space before an exhibition, presenting his art not as a defined concept, but as something immediate, creative, live and participatory.
