Martin Creed’s Work No. 1357 (MOTHERS) has been installed at 1401 Foch Street in the Fort Worth Cultural District. Referred to as “Creed’s most ambitious neon project to date,” the 23 x 47-foot work by the 2001 Turner Prize winner was installed in the plaza of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago in 2012 and remained at that site before arriving in Fort Worth. Now in a Fort Worth private collection, it will remain permanently at its current location.
In Creed’s own words, he explains the concept behind the scale of MOTHERS: “Mothers are always bigger than you are… it feels like mothers are the most important people in the world.”
