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.
