Creed is Good

Ben Tate

Recent work engages with art’s persistent commodity status, its use-value, functional value, exchange value and aesthetic value. It touches on the vastness of the art market, its power and growth. It also deals with the artist’s practice in the form of labour value, preciousness, storage, stock, excess and waste.
