"I am sick of thinking. I am sick and tired of thinking. I want my work to be more like a vomit than a rumination. I just want to go 'Blah!'. Or 'Woosh!'"- Martin Creed

Screening of 'SICK,' 20 mins, 2006, Cert 15

Martin Creed was born in 1968 and grew up in a suburb of Glasgow before studying painting at The Slade School of Fine Art in London.  He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2001 for his "Work No. 227: The lights going on and off". He took part in last year's Biennale de Lyon and a major solo exhibition of his work was held in Bern's Kunsthalle in 2003. Both London's Tate Modern and New York's Museum of Modern Art have his works in their collections. This year he is working on a theatre show with The Public Art Fund, New York, and a large survey exhibition at the Hessel Museum New York.

Hosted by The School of Fine Art, The Friday Event Lecture Series is The Glasgow School of Art's flagship public lecture series, and brings major international speakers (including artists, architects, designers, historians and cultural theorists) to the city of Glasgow.
