David Shrigley | It Wasn't My Idea tape

David Shrigley
It Wasn't My Idea tape
Copenhagen, Denmark: Flying Tiger Copenhagen, 2016
9 x 5 cm.
Unlimited edition

Packing tape adorned with the title phrase. From a series of recent notebooks, pencils and other stationary made for the Danish (deluxe) dollar store Flying Tiger.

“The nice thing about working with Flying Tiger Copenhagen is that they make things that everybody can have,” Shrigley says. They are very humble as objects and I kind of like the humility of those artworks. It is about reaching a very big audience with art objects and for them to be very accessible. You don’t want it to be an exclusive thing. You want it to be a democratic thing.”
