Martin creed is one of the most respected British artists working today, with solo exhibitions at the Hayward gallery in London, Hauser & Wirth in Zürich and many others. Creed is also the singer in a punk-experimental band in which Vuille, of We Spoke, plays drums. For this project, Creed will write a new work for We Spoke and join the ensemble on stage for new arrangements of his songs. The other half of the programme will present contemporary pieces written for instruments and video, as a reminder of creed’s visual practice: alexander Schubert’s “laplace tiger”, Stefan Prins’ “Piano Hero 1” and a new work by Laurent Estoppey.
