David Shrigley "Brain Activity" @ Hayward Gallery, London

February 03, 2012

Glasgow's David Shrigley, whose work we featured on the site late last year, just opened a new exhibition, Brain Activity, and the always-strong Hayward Gallery in London. Shrigley is known for his witty works, both in drawings and mini-installations and public pieces, this is his first major British survey, and includes photography, taxidermy, sculpture, animation, painting, and music based on human shortcomings. As Hayward notes, the work is "characterised by their varied use of humour and his abiding impulse to ‘communicate as simply and directly as possible’."
