Look at This: David Shrigley at Skip Gallery

22 June 2017

Who says modern art is rubbish? Turner-nominated artist David Shrigley's new work is housed inside a skip parked in London's Hoxton Square. Discover more about Look at This in a short film by Canvas Arts.

About the work

David Shrigley's works make satirical comments on everyday situations, with absurd reccurring themes pervading his storytelling. His giant sculpture of a thumbs-up, Really Good, was unveiled atop the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square last year, and Look at This was created inside a yellow skip in Hoxton.

The reactions of the public - which you can see in the film above - are integral to the artist's work. Shrigley also discusses his approach to art in an accompanying interview.

Skip Gallery was created by co-founders and creative partners Catherine Borowski and Lee Baker, two London-based artists who take the mundane and everyday and try to reimagine them in new situations.

Look at This is at Skip Gallery, in the parking space opposite 19 Hoxton Square, London N1 6PB, until 25 June. Films produced by Canvas Arts.
