The new project label 《MEET PROJECT》by AllRightsReserved continues to curate unprecedented creative projects with local and international artists. Following the massive success of《MEET David Shrigley’s April Fool PROJECT》released on April Fool’s Day 2020, 《 MEET PROJECT 》 by AllRightsReserved once again collaborates with celebrated contemporary British artist David Shrigley to present《MEET David Shrigley’s April Fool PROJECT VOL.2》on his favorite day of the year — April Fool’s Day 2021, releasing two series of silkscreen prints and a《YOU ARE SPECIAL》sculpture evoking each person’s inner special self.

David Shrigley, one of the UK’s most loved and respected artists, is known for his crude but hilarious tragicomic doodles, sculptures and anecdotes that depict the world as an absurd place. Appointed OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 2020 for his contributions to the visual arts, Shrigley works across a wide range of artistic media and scale, from the humongous sculpture《Really Good》 (2016) exhibited in London’s Trafalgar Square to quirky gadgets such as the 《Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-thing》floatie.

《YOU ARE SPECIAL》sculpture and silkscreen prints prolong satirical humor for the special you People often associate Shrigley’s humor with April Fool’s Day, which is a special day to him as well. “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. 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.”

Following last year’s release of the《SERPENT》sculpture and two original silkscreen prints, this year’s project features the brand-new sculpture《YOU ARE SPECIAL》and two series of
silkscreen prints —《I’VE GOT YOUR LIPSTICK》、《FUCK》、《I AM ELEGANT I AM OH SO
VERY VERY ELEGANT》、《I HATE HUMAN BEINGS》— that convey positive messages to remind each individual that they are special.

The sculpture and two silkscreen print sets will be released globally on DDT Store, starting from 12pm BST | 7am EDT | 7pm HKT, 1 April 2021.
