ART: David Shrigley at Yvon Lambert
Glasgow based cartoonist-philospher David Shrigley‘s sixth exhibition at Yvon Lambert opens this Wed and will feature 200 new drawings and an ensemble of recent sculptures. Derision, scathing irony, corrosive spirit, deadpan, hilarity of the absurd – humour as a means of grace reveals and transcend its tragic opposite. David Shrigley’s drawings perfectly illustrate British wit, how one’s phlegmatic distance from oneself, from others or from the world defuses and diverts daily annoyances, nighttime anxieties, and life dramas.
Until 31 Aug.
