Art dealer Anton Kern and artist David Shrigley

As the starting bell for the fall season sounds, I happened to swing by a delightfully mischievous show at Anton Kern Gallery and who should be showing but the talented, the unholy, the pithy, the nimble Scot himself….  David Shrigley.

.

From mounted crooked fingers on the wall, to a robot bludgeoning a baby seal, to a long plinth of huge ceramic black boots, Shrigley’s fourth show with Kern is a winner. Listen along as they suss out such heated topics as yoga balls, saddle chairs, hating children (except for one lucky child, Linus), how to get a gallery in NYC and of course no interview is complete without an in-depth investigation of the deadly ‘Glasgow Smile’.
