VENUE : White Stuff
FESTIVAL: Edinburgh Art Festival
Harry Hill is a comedian, famous for satirising popular television shows and wearing a shirt with a big collar. Outside of these achievements, Harry enjoys spending his time making art. At once funny, sad and macabre, the paintings and sculptures of Harry Hill take his mad cap view of the world to a new level of weird and will be shown here in his first public exhibition.
The selected works are from an on-going series depicting a parallel universe where nature, celebrity and surrealism collide. Recurring themes include selected well known faces from British daily life, extraordinary animals and most recently, a group of Brit Pop stars painted onto coconuts. What gives these paintings and objects an extra level of authenticity is that they are made by someone so submerged in the world they are parodying.
The exhibition will include a newly commissioned interview with Harry Hill and artist David Shrigley.
Running time: 480 mins
