Can contemporary art say anything new and interesting about guns?
Is there anything to be learnt by taking internet culture off the internet and putting it in a gallery?
Those are questions the WW Gallery is trying to answer in the affirmative with a double show, running until 2 March.
Jay Rechsteiner brings the guns.
Siobhan Barr brings the LOLs and the dolls.
I haven’t seen the show, but from the previews I think I like the LOLs better. Fake guns as a comment on real guns being an idea whose potency may well have passed.
