Detail, 'Half the Air in a Given Space', Martin Creed, 2000

Martin Creed Works


Southampton City Art Gallery


The controversial touring hit exhibition 'Martin Creed Works' which launched at Southampton City Art Gallery in 2000 led to Creed's nomination for the Turner Prize, which he won in 2001. 


I managed a team of volunteers to create Creed's now internationally renowned interactive room installation 'Half the Air in a Given Space', for which we inflated some 2000 x 16" balloons.


Many visitors and local press were incensed by some conceptual pieces in the show, including Creed's thumb-print in blu-tack stuck on a wall. My job, on more than one occasion, was to replace the blu-tack when schoolkids removed it, to the delight of the local journos!
