James Georgopoulos’ Pop-Up Gun Store
The Art Reserve is proud to present James Georgopoulos’ visual
adaptation of hand guns and automatic weaponry. Georgopoulos’ work will
be featured at a Pop-Up Gun Store located inside The Distillery during
the Venice Art Walk, Sunday May 23, 2010.
Georgopoulos’ conceptual Pop-Up Gun Store of famous hand-guns and automatic weaponry questions society’s acceptance of the overwhelming number of weapons and its extreme facination with the dissemination of information through technology. Georgopoulos promotes the concept of technology as a weapon and the juxtaposition of weaponry as art. Georgopoulos’ high-gloss object transforms the identity of firearms by giving the viewer the idea of playing with art by toying with guns.
The pop-up gun store, Georgopoulos’ latest work, includes limited edition weapons on silver gelatin prints, mounted and resined. The works are actual size and weight of the unloaded weapon they represent.
