Creed Gimmicks

Yesterday the Haywood Gallery in London's Southbank Centre opened a major retrospective of the playful tripe of Turner prize winner Martin Creed (CLICK). It's entitled What’s the point of it? and I absolutely agree. It has virtually nothing to do with art and everything to do with daft gimmicks. Shown is his Mothers. Anyone who is prepared to lash out £11 or £10 plus £1.75 booking fee on this stuff needs his or her bumps felt. CLICK for a BBC video to see what I mean. The show comes with a Haywood Gallery health warning: "This exhibition includes work containing nudity, bodily functions and some adult content." Adult? Where?
