Art critic, Clive Bell, once theorized that art is subjective, and that the combination of lines and colors creates an aesthetic emotion unique to each person. In the case of MEMORIAL by artist David Shrigley, that emotion is apparently the fear of forgetting something at the supermarket.
MEMORIAL is a seventeen-foot tall stone monument that consists of nothing more than a list of grocery items. All the important stuff is there… peanut butter, ketchup, eggs, bread, etc. The monolith was erected by Public Art Fund, and is currently on display in New York City’s Central Park. Monument to self… buy bread.
