Shrigley Subject of UK Retrospective

David Shrigley, 'I'm Dead', 2010

Scottish artist David Shrigley is being given his first major UK retrospective at Hayward Gallery. Opening in February 2013, Brain Activity will feature over 175 new and recent works, many of which have never been seen before in London.  Included is the rather forlorn chap above, a canine counterpart to the feline version he made in 2007, along with photographs, “some bronze bits and bobs” and a jar of toenail clippings.

Hear the show’s curator Cliff Lauson in conversation with David Shrigley here.
