GAVIN BROWN’S ENTERPRISE – 620 GREENWICH ST, WEST SIDE, NYC.
if the explicit video loop in MARTIN CREED’S last show, came across as a ‘manual on human reproduction’, taking place inside a space ship; the other part of the exhibit, a custom ‘floor’ was . . a totally ‘inverted’ gallery experience.
‘gravity’ was thrown under the bus, again.
literally, in that you walked on .. the art.
MARTIN CREED, ‘Work No. 1697’, 2013. Brick and mortar, 156 x 156 x 12 in.
so, I bring up the past .. to help make sense of the present.
a vast wall, as opposed to a floor. but it’s still: SPATIAL PLAY.
