One of the best things about having this blog is that we’re constantly being inspired by our Tea Friends.
A Tea friend recently sent me a photo of David Shrigley’s sculpture ‘Very Large Cup of Tea’ (2012) part of the Brain Activity exhibition on show at the Hayward’s Gallery in London. David Shrigley is known for focusing on the more mundane, comforting aspects of life in his art.
Born in Macclesfield in 1968, David Shrigley has lived in Glasgow since moving there to study Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art in 1988. Brain Activity is his first complete survey of the UK and the largest Shrigley’s exhibition to date.
The sculpture is a constantly evolving gigantic cup made from glazed ceramic which is replenished with real Tea (with milk and now sugar) every two to three days.
This exhibition is available until May 13th so it is definitely on my “to do list” for next month. 🙂
Happy Tea Break.
