"Hmmm...David Shrigley's Selection from the Permanent Collection"
2001-11-24 until 2002-02-24
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Edinburgh, , UK United Kingdom

Selected by David Shrigley, Hmmm... is the second in a series of small displays chosen from the Gallery's permanent collection by invited artists. Born in Macclesfield in 1968, Shrigley studied at Glasgow School of Art, and now lives and works in the city.

His sculptures, photographs and books are darkly humorous and often absurd, and his drawings were recently a weekly feature in the Independent on Sunday. Given the complete freedom of the Gallery's stores and print room, Shrigley has put together a striking combination of works, from Marcel Duchamp's Wedge of Chastity, made in bronze and dental plastic, to an early portrait by the Scottish Colourist, S. J. Peploe. The display will include both works that are rarely seen, and paintings by more familiar artists, including René Magritte and John Bellany. A display of Shrigley's own work in the Gallery's collection will accompany Hmmm...
