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.

Details here.
