David Shrigley: FLUFF WAR
In his seventh solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery, entitled FLUFF WAR, British artist David Shrigley presents a large-scale kinetic sculpture, two neon sculptures, and 100 new drawings.
As visitors approach the gallery, they are greeted by a two-part magenta neon sign bearing contradictory instructions: one reads “WEAR SHOES” and the other “DO NOT WEAR SHOES”. The storefront window signage will seem perfectly at home to a passerby, as the gallery is located in New York’s famed Fifth Avenue shopping district. Here you are initiated into the world of David Shrigley.
