David Shrigley is internationally-acclaimed for his stripped back, darkly humorous and deliberately crude work that explores existential dramas, human dysfunction and anxiety. His works are simultaneously humorous, unsettling and irreverent: a combination that is always just right. The Life Model is a comprehensive look at Shrigley's Turner Prize-winning work, Life model, 2012. Art and literary luminaries such as Will Self, Jess Johnson, Chris Kraus, Justin Paton, Justin Clemens, Anastasia Klose, Laure Prouvost, Kieran Cox and Lisa Radford, along with NGV co-curators Max Delany and Serena Bentley, contribute texts that touch on the diverse, poignant and bold subjects presented in Shrigley's unsettlingly funny and accessible Life model work. The Life Model also includes extensive illustrations and imagery of the Life model, 2012, and the countless drawings it has inspired.
