“Laugh-out-loud funny… as provocative and entertaining as you could hope for.” Peter Carty, The Independent ‘I bloody loved it!’ Gary Hume In this brilliantly dark satire, Simon Bill brings together two utterly disparate worlds; the endlessly fascinating and strangely implausible world of neuroscientific research and the equally strange, drug-fuelled and novelty-charged posturing of London’s contemporary art scene. Providing the link is Bill’s drunken anti-hero, an abstract artist down on his luck who lands a residency at a shiny new neuro institute. Between an endless round of private views (which he attends to siphon the free booze and ingratiate himself with dealers) he sets out to revive his stalled career, and love life, with a neuro-inspired art show. His new job might also help him cope with his own neurological deficits - a lousy sense of direction and alcoholic blackouts. Artist in Residence will have you laughing out loud at the spotlight grabbing antics of aspiring artists and curators while fascinating you with insights into the workings of the human brain.
