Exhibition David Shrigley – „My Artwork Is Terrible“ 12.03.2020

Location:  Nürnberg

 

Galerie Frank Fluegel opens the exhibition "David Shrigley - My Artwork Is Terrible" on Thursday, 12.03.2020 at 7 pm in Nuremberg. On display are graphics and design objects by the British artist. The exhibition lasts until 27.06.2020.

 

David Shrigley was born 1968 in Macclesfield, GB and studied at the Glasgow School of Art. He is best known for his satirical drawings with text, which make fun of the banality of everyday situations with black humour and put them on display. Most of his work consists of drawings, sculptures, installations and paintings. As a big music fan, he also designs record covers time and again. 

 

Shrigley describes his own style as "a kind of artistic doodling, coupled with a not-so-beautiful handwriting." Described by his professors as "too funny," Shrigley, however, has always felt that he "only wants to draw like this and not differently. Serious art can also be funny, and the opposite of serious art is not funny but bad art, Shrigley said.

 

 Shrigley lives outside Glasgow and still draws cartoons for publications such as the Guardian and the New Statesman. In 2013 he was nominated for the Turner Prize. In early 2014 he was commissioned to design a sculpture for the fourth pedestal of Trafalgar Square. His works are integrated into the collections of MOMA/New York and Tate/London. The Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich dedicated the first major solo exhibition to him in Germany in 2014. In 2020 Shrigley was awarded the Officer of the Order of Merit of the British Empire by the Queen.

 

Galerie Frank Fluegel has represented the artist at the Nuremberg and Kitzbuehel locations since 2019. The paintings and graphics can of course also be purchased online.
