Transforming Fabrica into a classroom, Life Model II plays on the age-old tradition of life drawing classes by replacing the live model with a caricatured robotic sculpture of a (blinking) nine-foot-tall woman.
Visitors are invited to sit, observe and draw the model using materials provided, with the resulting artworks displayed as part of the exhibition.
David Shrigley says: "Life Model II is an artwork that begets other artwork. There's the three-dimensional work of the life model - a sculpture of somebody trying to stand still (which is a good thing to make a sculpture of when you think about it).
"And there's the two-dimensional work which is made by the visitors to the exhibition. It"s a piece about drawing, it's a piece about everybody being included, about participating and making an exhibition yourself."
Life Model II is a follow-up to the original Life Model, David Shrigley's Turner Prize-nominated installation of the same name.
The first iteration of Life Model featured a giant sculpture of a naked man blinking and urinating into a bucket, which visitors were invited to draw and then exhibit.
David Shrigley explains: "I showed the original incarnation of the work in the Turner prize show, because I thought that people see the arts, and visual art in particular, as being elitist and inaccessible.
"I suppose that's what the piece is about, that art is for everybody, and that making art is also for everybody as well.
"It's a therapeutic thing, it"s something that can make you happy. For some reason, in terms of our education, the majority of us are dissuaded from making art.
"When we go into adulthood we stop making it when we're about 10-years-old because we think we're not good at a drawing, but I guess I'm a person who has built a career around not demonstrating many craft skills.
"Life Model for me is some kind of redress, and there"s something positive and joyful in that redress."
The Brighton Festival 2018 Guest Director is best known for his illustrations that satirically comment on everyday life.
His animations, which accompany the installation, are a natural extension of these, bringing to life their quick-witted narratives.
David Shrigley is the first visual artist to take on the role of Guest Director since the inaugural Guest Director, Anish Kapoor in 2009.
