Best-known for his wry and witty drawings, David Shrigley’s artistic practice extends well beyond drawing to include photography, sculpture, neon signs, animation, painting, printmaking, publishing and music. Hayward Publishing published the libretto for Pass the Spoon, a ‘sort-of opera’ written by Shrigley featuring TV chefs June Spoon and Philip Fork, a manic-depressive egg and a host of other surreal characters. The libretto was published on the occasion of performances at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre, and the Southbank Centre, London. Featuring ten brand new illustrations and original text, this is the first-ever libretto written by David Shrigley.
