The Hauser & Wirth Zurich exhibited the following works 'Work No. 2157' (2015), 'Work No. 2309' (2015) & 'Work No. 2318' (2015) in 2015 along with other new works by Martin Creed. Weftfaced has been rendering the works into tapestry over the summer of 2015. 'Work No. 2157' (2015) has been woven in dyed wool and 'Work No. 2309' (2015) is made using soley natural wool from the UK. The final piece 'Work No. 2318' (2015)  is woven using natural white wool and gold no. 1 twist thread. 
 
'Creed respects things for the way they are, often engaging in very minimal interventions, in a way letting materials speak for themselves. ‘Work No. 2309’ (2015) and Work No. 2157’ (2015) each consist of 16 uniform bands of different coloured wool, one set of which consists of a range of all the available un-dyed natural fibres, the other a randomly arranged complete spectrum of dyed varieties. This play with ideas of series and sequences, variation and repetition, is in Creed’s case an end in itself, the seed or ingredient for making a picture and the picture itself.'
