Martin Creed - Graeme Robertson - surface and surfaceI went to see Martin Creed’s  solo exhibition ‘What’s the point of it?’ at the Hayward gallery in the Southbank Centre yesterday. A ford focus coming to life, a huge spinning ‘Mothers’ sign, objects of different sizes stacked on top of each other, half a room filled with white balloons, a beautiful view of Big Ben & london eye obscured by a giant film screen showing a man getting and loosing an erection. Don’t go expecting high brow art like the woman who felt compelled to tell me with disgust how she couldn’t understand how he get’s away with it all. It’s art that really doesn’t take itself seriously. Martin Creed’s ‘What’s the Point of it?’ will make you laugh, squirm and possibly gag but it’s definitely entertaining and it runs from 29 January until 27 April at the Hayward Gallery, London.

David Shrigley - Surface and Surface

I don’t know why I like David Shrigley’s work so much, it’s badly drawn and a lot of it make no sense but when it’s good it’s sharp and very funny.

“Shrigley finds humour in flat depictions of the inconsequential, the unavailing and the bizarre – although he is far fonder of violent or otherwise disquieting subject matter.”

David Shrigley’s exhibition ‘Brain Activity’ runs until 13th May at the Hayward Gallery in London. Watch his presentation at Offset 2009 below and David’s first adventures into the realm of video art which is a take on minimalist artist Martin Creed’s controversial Turner prize winning work entitled ‘The Lights Going On and Off..’.
