David Shrigley: Pass the SpoonDavid Shrigley: Pass the Spoon

A Sort-Of Opera About Cookery

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Foreword by David Shrigley, David Fennessy, Nicholas Bone.

Pass the Spoon is the libretto for David Shrigley’s wildly popular “sort-of opera.” Here, Shrigley applies his mordant humor to this tale of a surreal cooking show gone awry. Described as “daft and instantly lovable” by The Guardian, Pass the Spoon features two TV chefs (June Spoon and Philip Fork), a manic-depressive alcoholic egg, a Latino banana and a host of other bizarre characters. This publication accompanies the artist’s first major retrospective at Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, and the opera’s first performance in London.

David Shrigley: Brain ActivityDavid Shrigley: Brain Activity

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Text by Cliff Lauson, Martin Herbert, Jonathan Monk. Interview by Dave Eggers.

Best known for his wry and witty drawings, British artist David Shrigley has built up an artistic practice that, over the past two decades, has expanded well beyond drawing to include photography, sculpture, neon signs, animation, painting, printmaking, publishing and music. Shrigley finds humor in flat depictions of the inconsequential and the bizarre, qualities that he heightens through a deliberately limited technique. In this unusually complete look at the much-loved artist’s diverse approaches, Shrigley is revealed as a master of many media and many kinds of humor, from the black humor for which he is famed to caricature and more slapstick situations. With an immediate and accessible appeal to diverse audiences, Shrigley’s work offers an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major survey show, at London’s Hayward Gallery, this beautifully produced volume includes a 7” vinyl picture-disc, featuring an exclusive recording by the artist.
David Shrigley was born in Macclesfield, England, in 1968, and studied Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art from 1988–1991. As well as authoring numerous books, he directed the video for Blur’s “Good Song” and for Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s “Agnes, Queen of Sorrow.” Between 2005 and 2009, he contributed a cartoon for the U.K. Guardian Weekend magazine every Saturday.

I didn't make a record. It would have been too difficult. It was easier not to make a record, David Shrigley writes on the LP sleeve covering his record-shaped book of song lyrics. Worried Noodles. Ugly Cunts. Songbook connects the three spheres of his work--art, books and music--with satisfying ease. His lyrics show a thriving will to understand, a simple, ambiguous poetry, ironic and honest.

Published by Domaine de Kerguehennec.
Essay by Frederic Paul. Interview by Neil Mulhoalland.

To paraphrase the essayist of this tidy volume, Glasgow is neither here nor there, but then neither is Paris or Milan or New York. If each strives to be the center of the world, they do it primarily by establishing their brand-name products as better than someone else's. The vernacular is universal and the particular is general. What has value in Glasgow therefore has value elsewhere. And thus David Shrigley creates drawings, sculptures, installations and photographs that are no less but no more than a heroic act because they inspire the memory of sensations that are incongruous, repressed and sometimes just simply unpleasant. Featuring a thorough sampling of recent work, a conversation with the artist and the aforementioned essay.
