A room filled with balloons kicks off the exhibition ‘SAY CHEESE!’, the second exhibition at the new Museum Voorlinden.
The exhibition brings together 54 works to form a coherent reflection of Creed’s versatile and characteristic oeuvre and has been realized in close collaboration with the artist.
‘SAY CHEESE!’ invites the viewer to journey in to the inner world of Martin Creed: a world that often functions as a critique of society through its humor and tongue-in-cheek irony. The visitor encounters works with cacti, balls and light bulbs, stacks of toilet paper rolls, chairs, tables and a wall covered with broccoli paintings. In the midst of the artworks live piano music is heard – played according to precise instructions from the artist and witnessed by an incongruous marathon runner who periodically passes through the museum.
