Creed Revamps Sketch

Martin Creed, the artist best known for winning the 2001 Turner prize for The lights going on and off has redecorated the interior of London restaurant Sketch. Creed’s laid the floor of the Michelin starred brasserie with 96 different types of marble (he calls this Work No. 1347) and ensured that every single piece of furniture and cutlery in the restaurant is completely different (the mismatch of objects is referred to as Work No. 1343).  This cacophony of materials embodies the artist’s willingness to succumb to indecision.  He says: “All my work is based on not knowing what I want or trying to have everything. But in the microcosm of what I do – like choosing types of marble or furniture – I literally can have everything. I like to turn indecision into a beautiful thing, rather than a failure”.
