So yesterday afternoon we popped down to the Hayward Gallery on the Embankment to check out the popular retrospective exhibition by Turner prize winner, Martin Creed. I've heard so much and seen so many pictures from this exhibition and just had to check it out myself.

We were greeted at the entrance by a huge spinning neon sign (be careful if you're 6ft or above) Creed explains the meaning behind this monument to motherhood 'when you're small, your mother is always really big'.

So absurd but I actually loved the wall of broccoli stamps, it's so colourful and something I could even recreate at home - not that I'm going to.

The real question is - if you had to pick a cactus to be beaten with - which one would you choose?

The room filled with balloons released the inner child in me - there really isn't anything I'd rather do on a Wednesday afternoon than be attacked by 7000 latex balloons! 'The environment he creates is both playful and claustrophobic, and drastically alters our perception of space.'

Overall Martin Creed's 'What's The Point of It' has been one of the most fun and engaging exhibitions I have been to (not to mention odd, but I'll let you see for yourself). The dates have been extended until 5th May 2014 so make the most of it while you can.
