Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his deft economy of means, Creed has produced sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life.
Always in search of the essential nature of things, Creed uses the simplest materials to create a world in which reality appears transformed by conceptual rules, as well as by the unexpected breaking of those rules.
His work is subtle and spectacular, austere and playful – a sheet of paper crumpled into a ball, a door opening and closing, the lights going on and off, or a soundtrack inside a moving lift.
