This Is Jinsy and You’ve Been Framed have both been nominated for an award at the TV Choice Awards – but unfortunately, there is no nomination for TV Burp.
Harry Hill will be doing his best Brendan from Coach Trip and will be turning tour guide in December.
He will be doing a tour of artist David Shrigley’s new exhibition, How Are You Feeling?, at the Cornerhouse. The exhibition, which runs from 6th October to 6th January 2013, will include a number of drawings, paintings, sculpture and never-seen-before live performance.
The works will attempt to provide art therapy for the visitors, with interactive work through actors providing performance based works
David will be doing a show and tell lecture on 13th October and Harry will be doing his tours on 1st December.
On the exhibition, Shrigley said:
I’m very happy to be showing at Cornerhouse. I think they are going to let me do whatever I want there. I may destroy parts of the building and re-build them in an interesting way. I will bring all my skills to the task; I may also use witchcraft. I feel a strong bond with the people from Manchester – I may have lived here in a former life. I think the people of Manchester are very exotic and interesting and I am excited to be amongst them.
Before the exhibition, there will be a 12 day residency, where the artist will create new works that respond to the Manchester gallery spaces.
The exhibition is curated by artist Mike Chavez-Dawson.
