Con­tro­ver­sial art to go on show

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - ART -

THE work of Turner Prizewin­ning artist Martin Creed will be fea­tured as part of the Artist’s Rooms se­ries of exhibitions from this week­end at Hull’s Ferens Art Gallery.

Creed, who has been the butt of many jokes about con­tem­po­rary art, shot to in­famy with his in­stal­la­tion No 227: The lights go­ing on and off, which fea­tured an empty gallery with the lights go­ing on and off.

His work, which is on show un­til Oc­to­ber 6, is not, as some com­men­ta­tors have noted, an elab­o­rate joke – he brings won­der and in­trigue to ob­jects that we take for granted.
