Conceptual artist? Poet? Musician? Choreographer? Or simply a bloke who produces things that he hopes will make a connection with people. He'd say the latter, and I'd say he succeeds. I'm talking about the Glaswegian Martin Creed, who made his name by winning the Turner Prize in 1991 with his work # 227: The lights going on and off.
Since then he has created a musical instrument out of some stairs in Edinburgh and turned Tate Britain's Duveens Gallery into a space of perpetual motion.
On Friday he opens a new show at Hauser & Wirth in London and to coincide with it he has released his first ever single Thinking / Not Thinking. Check it (and him) out.
