I have been making porcelain guns, not literal ones but small gun-objects derived from two squirt guns and glazed in un-gun-like colors. I intend them for a Gun Exchange installation, and would like to use it for the FIT “New Views” faculty exhibit.
The installation includes a crossroads shaped (X shaped) table that fits into a 4' by 4' space. Some of the porcelain guns hang over the center of the table at about eye level. Others are offered for exchange on the table.
There is also a cloth banner over the point where the viewer enters the space that announces Gun Exchange, and hanging along both sides of that are banners that explain the process and intention of the piece. Exchange your weapon, of any kind, for one of the guns available on the table and leave your weapon in place of the gun. I intend to create another installation using what is donated.
I will replace the guns periodically, and collect the donated weapons so the exchange can go on.
