Shrigley at Hayward

This must be the silliest show I've ever reviewed: David Shrigley: Brain Activity. The stuffed Jack Russell terrier holding a notice I'm Dead (2010) is as good as it gets. Most of the show is badly drawn visual puns which are supposed to represent British humour, but there are also books, photos, sculpture, animation, painting and music, not forgetting the stuffed mutt. If you fancy chancing £8 to find out if he raises a smile to your lips, you'll find the show in the Haywood Gallery in the Southbank Centre, London, until 13 May. Click the title link for details.
