Best-known for his wry and witty drawings, British artist David Shrigley's artistic practice extends well beyond drawing to include photography, sculpture, neon signs, animation, painting, printmaking, publishing and music.
In an unusually complete look at the artist's diverse creative approach, David Shrigley: Brain Activity showcases a body of conceptual work that is filled with sardonic caricatures, slapstick situations and black humour. With an immediate and accessible appeal to diverse audiences, Shrigley's work offers an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships.
Published on the occasion of the artist's first major survey show in London's Hayward Gallery (1 February - 13 May 2012), this beautifully appointed volume features an interview by writer Dave Eggers, essays by Martin Herbert and Cliff Lauson, and an original piece of prose by the artist Jonathan Monk.
David Shrigley: Brain Activity also features a new 7-inch picture disc featuring exclusive recorded original spoken word material created specifically for the book and presented in exclusive screen-printed packaging.
