WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed gives basic ballet positions a fresh perspective in Work 1020. Simple dance moves are deconstructed, rewound, stopped and started. Playing with his live band, Creed and five classically trained dancers work together to create a funny, curious and insightful one-off performance of music and dance in Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall. From January - April 2014 the Hayward Gallery presents a survey of playful, thought-provoking art. Over the past two and a half decades British artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art. Winner of the 2001 Turner Prize, Creed is recognized around the world for his conceptually-driven art that is at once playful, familiar, and thought-provoking. Crossing all artistic media and including musical performance and dance, his art transforms everyday materials and actions into surprising meditations on existence and the invisible structures that shape our lives. Martin Creed's Work No. 1020 includes nudity and some adult content. Age guidance: 14+
