Enjoy This Hell

It’s a rare thing to enter a contemporary art gallery and hear people giggling, but David Shrigley’s show of new work at Stephen Friedman Gallery is likely to have you chuckling even before you’ve opened the gallery door. Facing out into the street is a new sculpture by Shrigley, of a delicate taxidermied kitten holding up a placard proclaiming “I’m Dead”. The artwork sets the tone for the show, which contains Shrigley’s usual mix of humour and pathos.
