Playing with Weapons

Cuddly toys of mass destruction

 

They look cute and cuddly. But look again and you’ll see them for what they are: bombs, missiles and mortars. As toy, guns are popular as ever. I thought it's time to make the next step with these toys of mass destruction. Although they are made from soft wool, the shape and size are for real. The biggest of them all is a stuffed replica of the nuke on Hiroshima, which ironically was nicknamed ‘Little Boy’. Could the contradiction be any more obvious? A short accompanying movie shows how politicians play with their bombs like boys with their toys. Isn’t it time to stop this madness?


Hannah van Luttervelt presents her work from 1st March 16 - 1st April at the Yksi Expo Black Box.
