From September 8 to November 14, 2018, power station of Design, a creative extension of the Power Station of Art, and British Council are pleased to present the premiere solo exhibition of British artist David Shrigley. Entitled Lose Your Mind, the exhibition showcases more than 400 pieces of Untitled Drawings, a 1:1 scale inflatable version of Really Good, and other signature works over the past 30 years representative of Shrigley’s irreverent take on the intersections between art, design and popular culture. The exhibition hopes to shake up our assumptions by breaking down existing understandings of contemporary art.
Shrigley is known for his clever use of puns, satirical play-on-words, to present his unique black humour and absurd surrealist depictions of everyday situations. What is behind the seeming cynicism is the artist's insight into the human condition and his criticism of the ‘cliché’. The artist sets up multiple rousing hurdles for the upcoming exhibition.
