ART EVENT: Martin Creed An Evening of Words, Music and Dance WORK NO. 1020






Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, UK 8th April 2014 at 7.30pm

Martin and his band and dancers are joined by singers from Trinity Laban Conservatoire
Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed gives basic ballet positions a fresh perspective in Work No.1020.

In this work, simple dance moves are deconstructed, rewound, stopped and started. Playing with his live band, Creed and five dancers work together to create a one-off performance of music and dance in Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Over the past two and half decades, British artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art.

Martin Creed’s Work No. 1020 includes nudity and some adult content. Age guidance – 14+

There is an informal post-show discussion after this performance.

Martin Creed: TOAST

A new exhibition by Martin Creed entitled ‘Toast’ will include new sculpture, painting, drawing, tapestry, video, live action and music.

The Tunisian/French artist eL Seed’s installation Perception, was painted across 50 buildings in Cairo without the consent of the Government who have stopped street artists making work, and censure artists across many media. The installation was in an area called Manshiyat Nasr, where Coptic Christians live. They are called Zabaleen (the garbage people) but do not use this term themselves. They collect the city’s rubbish and recycle it, yet are discriminated against because of their work, and they are seen as dirty. The text eL Seed used is from Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, a 3 rd century Coptic Bishop and states: ‘?? ???? ??? ?? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ???? ?????’ (Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first). The anamorphic image took the artist and a team of workers over three weeks in install, and it could clearly be seen from the nearby Moqattam Mountain.
