What's The Point Of It?

The Martin Creed exhibit at the Hayward Gallery was something else. 'What's the Point of It?' I think I liked the fact that it revelled in having very little point. The concept that nothing can be nothing, everything has to be something, is intriguing.

I wouldn't go along to this exhibit and expect everything to make sense, the beauty of it it that it doesn't make a huge amount of sense, which somehow felt right.

The exhibit took over the whole gallery and every room held a variety of treasures. The giant, rotating mother sign was a firm favourite,  to a small person your mother is the most significant and towering presence and I loved the idea of showing that as a huge rotating, all encompassing and even a little overbearing.

I walked through one of the doors to be greated by a giant penis film, which oddly made me less uncomfortable than it should have, its quite interesting to see how people react to situations - do you squirm or embrace? The warm, sunny day definitely added to the uncontrollable penis atmosphere. Another room had a wall filled with broccoli prints - there is literally no point to that but that is why I enjoyed it, I mean why not?

The best part of the exhibit has to be ' Half the Air in a Given Space' (read: room full of white balloons...) the piece is designed to be playful and claustrophobic, it was easy to get sucked into the momentum of being surrounded by nothing - almost exhilarating and massively fun.

You know when you just love an outfit? That.

I saw this two piece in H&M and almost peed with excitement, I know that is an attractive image but you know... we are all friends here.

The exhibit is open until the 27th April - so make sure you make the most of running through a room full of balloons whilst you can..

This gold know necklace is the most perfect creation - its beautiful, delicate and £3 - H&M you win again.

We decided to class up the day with coffee and cake once we had recovered from the balloon excitement, we went to a perfect little place in Oval called Cable Bar - to add to this places understated coolness they apparently have regular live nights.... definitely worth a look in if your in the area.
