Matthew Varey | Pulled Grenade Pin
Pulled Grenade Pin
Toronto, Canada: Self-published, 2014
8 x 7 x 4”
Edition of 10 numbered copies
The pin from a used grenade cast in sterling silver and housed in what looks like a found military case, accompanied by an etched stainless steel certificate. The work is produced in an edition of ten (one for each finger?) as part of the artist's exhibition To Witness, which also includes a series of sculptural utopian outfits that "embody a Ray Bradbury-esque science fiction". The show runs from the 25th of July to the 24th of August at Peninsula Art Space in Brooklyn, with an opening reception on Friday, from 7 to 10 pm, with the artist in attendance.
