Cornerhouse is delighted to present a major exhibition of new and recent work by acclaimed artist David Shrigley. HOW ARE YOU FEELING? features a range of drawings, paintings, sculpture and never-seen-before live performance. Taking visitors on a skewed, cathartic journey through the clever, amusing and raw world of David Shrigley, this extraordinary exhibition will offer a highly interactive experience.

'How Are You Feeling?' is a familiar phrase often used in self-help, psychiatry and the diagnosis of psychosis. For this exhibition, Shrigley offers art-therapy to visitors to help them cope with 'an increasingly crazy and poorly signposted world'.

David Shrigley is best known for his canny, farcical and deliberately dysfunctional cartoon-like drawings that observe everyday fears of the human condition and conventional social matters. Finding humour in the bizarre and inconsequential with immediate and attainable appeal, his work often asks questions about the nature of contemporary art and its audience. He has had an international career spanning two decades and had a weekly cartoon in The Guardian's Weekend Magazine.

curated by Mike Chavez-Dawson.

David Shrigley's new book HOW ARE YOU FEELING? will be published by Canongate on 4 October 2012 (RRP £12.99).
