AllRightsReserved "MEET David Shrigley’s April Fool PROJECT VOL.2" Reminds You of Your UniquenessReleasing on the U.K. artist’s favorite day of the year.
Set to release on April Fool’s Day 2021 — the U.K. artist’s favorite day of the year — the MEET Project collab will be comprised of two silkscreen print series and a sculpture. The sculpture, entitled YOU ARE SPECIAL, and the prints, each titled I’VE GOT YOUR LIPSTICK, FUCK, I AM ELEGANT I AM OH SO VERY VERY ELEGANT and I HATE HUMAN BEINGS, convey positive messages to remind each individual of what makes them unique.
“I like April Fool’s Day because, I guess it’s a day when traditionally I look at the newspaper, or on the Internet, or on TV for April Fool’s jokes that are being played on me, on everybody really,” Shrigley said in a statement. “It’s good if you remember that it’s April the 1st, a lot of times I forget. Sometimes I don’t find out about the jokes until later, in retrospect.”
The sculpture and silkscreen print series will be released in a limited edition of 75 pieces and 125 pieces respectively. Each work will be signed by the artist and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, with the sculpture arriving in a wooden box. YOU ARE SPECIAL is priced at $850 USD and the prints, which will be sold in pairs, are priced at $2,800 USD. Both works will be available available for purchase on the DDT Store starting April 1.
Elsewhere in art, the Louvre has made its entire art collection available online and for free.
