‘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.
