The Printemps de Septembre (Spring in September) returns this year after a three year hiatus to Toulouse in Southern France. The festival, which was recently redefined as a Biennal by founder Marie-Thérèse Perrin, takes place throughout the city with a programme of exhibitions, concerts, screenings and performances.
Fresh from his recent inauguration of the ‘Really Good’ sculpture on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, British artist and Turner Prize nominee David Shrigley has designed and manufactured all the elements to organise a music festival in partnership with the Higher Institute of Arts in Toulouse: the instruments, stage setting and rehearsal studio, posters and even the lyrics of songs, where bands can register and play.
The installation is called ‘ David Shrigley – Problem in Toulouse’.
The display is featured in the Palais des Arts school , as well as a series of David Shrigley’s distinctive black and white quick-witted drawings and hand-rendered texts with satirical comments on everyday situations.
