Martin Creed creates order where there is none, offering ‘a simple frame through which people can see all the chaos of the world.’

More Information

Work No. 700 is the largest sculpture in a series made from stacking objects that ascend or descend in scale. The work is made up of three progressively slimmer I-beams stacked together, simultaneously eliminating and alluding to the intended function of the objects by making them unusable, but retaining a quality that suggests they are second-hand.

Creed’s practice takes in aspects of Minimalism and found art and is characterised by a spirit of enquiry – posing questions about taste, commodification and reality versus the unreal.
