The artists in THE MAN DON’T GIVE A FUCK shared similar sensibilities. Their work was laced with a melancholic humour that questions its intentions or seriousness. It can be adolescent, scruffy and surly. Using an often offhand approach, their work denied any superficial finesse to reveal a love of an awkward, vulnerable imagery.

There was an anxious contradiction on show, with the work being self conscious of what it is, yet disregarding any angst by replacing it with a certain nonchalance. This vulnerability, combined with a disarming humour and confrontational approach prompts further questions. What it is to be understood; what is it to be (dis)liked, loved or respected?
