Good Art #7. How Are You Feeling Now?

One of my favourite exhibitions this year is David Shrigley's How Are You Feeling Now? Hearty chuckles were had as I wandered from room to room exploring drawings, sculptures and installations. I love Shrigley's witty dark drawings, and I loved the gob-smackingly funny video installation about a would be art collector and her negotiations with both artist and bank manager in her pursuit to own a dreadful piece of art. Hilarious. But for me the stand put piece is the life model and studio (pictured). Punters could, if they wished, sit themselves down and draw the life model. The resulting drawings are pinned to the wall for all to see. How Are You Feeling Now is showing at Manchester's buzzy Cornerhouse.
