Taking its cue from the pamphlet, 'Exhaustion et Exuberance' by critic Jan Verwoert, this exhibition of existing and new works by David Sherry pivots on the pressure to perform in the knowledge economy, the contradictions defining success, and the disruptive effect of nonsense humour. After an opening performance by the artist, a comedic prop triggers an anthology of small-scale works, requiring the preposterous labour of audience and invigilators.

David Sherry (Northern Ireland, 1974) is a Glasgow based visual artist. In his performances, such as 'Get Cancelled', (Guest Projects, London, 2017), 'Elite Receipt' (Manifesta11, Zürich, 2016); 'Total Crap' (GoMA, Glasgow, 2015), Sherry addresses the conundrums of commodification, taking to extremes daily oddities. Recent solo exhibitions include 'Epiphany of Insignificance', Golden Thread, Belfast 2016; 'One Million Years of Laughter', Summerhall, Edinburgh, 2015.

Giulia Colletti (Italy, 1993) is a curator and a writer. She has worked for La Biennale di Venezia, OFF Biennale Budapest, and most recently as co-curator at The Hunterian. She is the founder of Falte Project.

This exhibition is presented by Falte Project, is part of Civic Room Open and is supported by Patricia Fleming Projects.
