Exhibition staff have begun the process of preparing Martin Creed’s installation Work No. 956: Half the air in a given space (purple) 2008. In the installation visitors will encounter a gallery space filled with approximately 3000 purple balloons. Strongly connected to the legacy of 1960s installation and conceptual art, Work No. 956 profoundly affects the viewer’s spatial and bodily awareness. Characteristic of Creed’s approach to art-making, the work’s matter-of-fact title and rigorous conceptual basis is partnered with an infectious sense of humour and surprise.
