MARTIN CREED. Ed. by Beate Ermacora and Matthia Loke. Kunstverein Heilbronn, 2016. Published in association with Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 124 pp. 22 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783864421365 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Maverick London-based Scottish artist Martin Creed (b. 1968) has spent the past twenty years subverting the fine lines between art and life, art and silliness, and art and provocation. Melding Conceptual Art smarts and Minimalist literal-mindedness in his videos, paintings and sculptures, Creed undermines the preciousness, skill and aloofness of art. This new monograph is not large but it is extensive enough to document the six site-specific installations currently at the Kunsthalle Vogelman, including essays by Anouchka Grose and Matthia L.bke, and an interview with the artist by Beate Ermacora. Awarded the Turner Prize in 2001 for a piece consisting of regularly switching a light on and off in a room, Martin Creed's playful but rigorous work challenges the viewer to engage with art, space and the world in general. When asked why he made art, Creed answered, "To make myself feel better." His current turn at the Park Avenue Armory, NY (2016) -- a kind of extended happening -- must be making him feel very good indeed.
