Artist David Shrigley makes sculptures, photographs and books that are darkly humorous and often absurd. Best known for his whimsical, cartoon-like ‘doodles’ and his anti-monumental ‘public’ interventions performed in various everyday situations; Shrigley’'s work blurs the distinctions between art and illustration, philosophy and satire. It also engages with the mundane doubts and paranoias of the human condition, articulating moral conundrums, obsessions and insecurities with humour and wit.

This talk follows Shrigley’s recent Billboard Commission at Gloucester Road Underground and the publication of a new book, Who I am and What I Want. The event is introduced by Neil Mulholland, author of The Cultural Devolution.
