David Shrigley – Brain Activity – Hayward Gallery Review

David Shrigley is currently occupying the Hayward Gallery, Southbank. The exhibition consists of Shrigley’s drawings, hand written texts partnered alongside sculptures, photography, animated films, neon signs and music. The work consists of his early pieces from the mid 1990’s to especially commissioned work for this showing. 

‘Brain Activity’ like all Shrigley’s work, humorous and often makes the viewer laugh out loud. However, to dismiss his work purely as a one-liner or a quick laugh will not do it justice. He also twists everyday scenarios into darker situations with a deathly & violent theme.

The work needs to be seen to fully be appreciated, however I hope a few sneaky pictures that I had taken for me provide an insight into what to expect. Brain Activity closes on May 13th so get down there before it finishes… There is even a dead rat on display!
