David Shrigley: HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

8067188292_d482e4d466_z‘How Are You Feeling?’ is a familiar phrase often used in self-help, psychiatry and the diagnosis of psychosis. For this exhibition, Shrigley offers you art-therapy to help you cope with “an increasingly crazy and poorly signposted world”.

David Shrigley is best known for his canny, farcical and deliberately dysfunctional cartoon-like drawings that observe everyday fears of the human condition and conventional social matters. Finding humour in the bizarre and inconsequential with immediate and attainable appeal, his work often asks questions about the nature of contemporary art and its audience. He has had an international career spanning two decades and had a weekly cartoon in The Guardian’s Weekend Magazine.

One of my favorite pieces of the exhibition was entitled ‘ the burden’ worn by a jumbo sized rucksack made to be so large that it is dysfunctional 🙂phpThumb
