The artistic work of Martin Creed (London), the 2001 Turner Prizewinner, is distinguished by a conceptual and minimalist approach in which he questions, often with subtle humor, the presentational and representational systems of art. From the beginning, music and sound have played a central role in his works, which frequently are based merely on instructions for minimal interventions. The music pieces that he writes for the band “owada”, which he co-founded in 1994, are also reduced to elementary song structures. “Situated somewhere between Steve Reich and the Ramones” (The Guardian), these songs undermine pop-cultural expectations. After many live appearances as a singer and guitarist with “owada”, and various solo performances in recent years, Martin Creed introduces a new band project under his own name, with new songs, for the first time, here in Berlin.
