AK-47 for Peace
Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, and Jake & Dinos Chapman are among two dozen artists that are producing art with an AK-47 for Peace One Day, the anti-war charity.
If you’re in London, don’t miss the show at the ICA, up through September, 30, 2012. The artworks will then be auctioned at Phillips de Pury on October 4, 2012.
“A lot of people say ‘am I scared of glorifying the AK-47?’ But I think the AK-47 is already glorified. I think the strongest message here is to show it can be used for something else visually and mentally,” Bran Symondson, the former army reservist and brainchild of this project, told Reuters.
