— David Shrigley: Brain Activity – Exhibition at the Hayward Gallery

I really enjoyed this exhibition of David Shrigley at the Hayward Gallery earlier this week. It was very amusing.

David Shrigley is best known for his humorous black and white newspaper cartoons that make witty, wry and sometimes dark observations on everyday life.

 

His deliberately crude graphic style has an immediate and accessible appeal, while simultaneously offering insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships.

 

Brain Activity is Shrigley’s first major survey exhibition in the UK and covers the full range of his work, extending beyond his drawings to include photography, taxidermy, sculpture, animation, painting, and music.

 

In addition, Shrigley presents a number of new works created especially for Hayward Gallery, all of which are characterised by their varied use of humour and his abiding impulse to ‘communicate as simply and directly as possible’.
