At Art the Arms Fair 2019 we are very proud to present a wide range of works from artists who, armed with cultural offerings, have come together to protest the presence of DSEI arms fair in London, responding to themes such as militarisation, forced migration and climate change. All of these topics are intrinsically linked to the ongoing sales of military equipment, including small arms, missiles, tanks, fighter jets and surveillance systems, all subsidised by the British government and its tax-payers. Using London’s arms fair itself as a departure point, Jill Gibbon’s chilling Welcome to Hell is in fact a complimentary gift given away at the arms fair by Bofors – an arms industry company, whose test centres are marketed as ‘Hell for your product, heaven for your investment,’ devoid of any consideration of the catastrophic impact their weapons have on human lives. This work, together with Gibbon’s Concertina Sketchbooks from her ten years attending the arms fair undercover, can be found in Safehouse 2. Darren Cullen similarly uses the weapons companies themselves as a departure point for his work in the exhibition: Boeing Safety Video draws out the lesser-known link between consumer flights and weapons aircrafts in his darkly critical piece.

We are particularly honoured to be presenting pieces by several artists whose work reflects personal experience of the far-reaching and catastrophic impact of the global weapons trade. Yemeni Saba Jallas’ photo collage Dream juxtaposes childhood innocence with the imagery of war in a work that is unsettling in its seemingly otherworldly, yet very real, representation of civilian Yemeni life. Also from Yemen, artist Ahmed Jahaf, whose work was shown at Art the Arms Fair 2017, interrogates British complicity in the sale of weapons worldwide by creating a map of the United Kingdom from the logos of the British arms companies who support Saudi Arabia in the war on Yemen. A work that is sadly all too relevant in the wake of the recent news that the UK has covered up its licensing over £6.3bn worth of weapons to Saudi-led forces in Y emen. Commissioned in London by Amnesty International, Typhoon Jet is a potent reminder of how UK action is ‘ruining lives in Yemen’, and was originally the centre of an anti-arms protest in Whitehall Place. Lastly, in its combination of opulence and ruins, Marble Tub by Yemeni diasporic artist Yasmine Diaz, seems to reflect upon the class inequalities exacerbated by war, as well as the all-encompassing damage of lives and livelihoods destroyed by war. Both of Edmund Clark’s works bring to light chilling evidence of the invisible mechanisms of state oppression, with Section 4 Part 20: One Day on a Saturday bringing together written material from one man incarcerated for six years at Guantanamo and readings from the Camp Delta Standard Operating Procedures Manual, instructions for camp personnel for disorientating and shackling


out on a massive scale.' These participants are notable in their combined nostalgia for wars before their life times. John Keane’s Working forms part of a series made to mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. In this piece, Keane focuses on how weapons manufacture is a leading source of employment, a reflection all the more poignant given that the initial impetus for the series arose from his awareness of unexploded ordnance from the war kills and injures people even a hundred years later. Focusing upon the physical and architectural impacts made by such artillery, Piers Secunda’s relief works present a ghostly, visual memorialisation of bullet shots fired by Taliban soldiers in Kabul, documenting forever these fleeting yet pervasive moments of destruction.

prisoners. Also confronting state violence, War Boutique’s Striking Suit, which remembers those killed and injured in peaceful protests, indicates the level of trauma to vital parts of the body when struck by force, while Delhi-based Raqs Media Collective’s A Forgotten Spell of Pleasant Amnesia, referring to India’s granting of special powers to its armed forces to maintain public order in so-called ‘disturbed areas’. Artist Ralph Ziman’s body of work draws from his youth in postapartheid South Africa. His vibrant and colourful beaded AK-47s were handcrafted with the help of Zimbabwean street vendors, who he then captured posing with the replica weaponry in a stunning series of photographs. Motivaed by a sense of social responsibility to raise awareness about the effects of the international arms trade within African continent, Ziman invites us to consider the original source of the weapons his replicas are based on. In AMP Gallery, Peter Kennard’s three-metre-high paintings associate the human cost of the Iraq war with visual tokens of military recognition. The torn ribbons bear objects which symbolise the terrible consequences of the invasion in place of medals. Also striking in its take on the commemoration of war is Jim Naughten’s Evacuee Girl in Blue Coat, which forms part of his Re-enactors Series in which the artist photographs some of the many thousands of people who gather together in Kent to transform into historical characters of the first and second world wars. He describes it as, 'something more than acting, a collective fantasy played

Looking towards feminism’s role in combating feelings of powerlessness and despair, Guerrilla Girls’ witty work Estrogen Bomb highlights a crucial link between power and hypermasculinity, and imagines an alternative future in which women yield this power. Finally, further constructing alternatives to war, Michelle Tylicki, in collaboration with her father Jacek Tylicki envisions what both artists call ‘creative anarchy’ as an alternative channelling of anger and despair. Building upon Jacek’s street art performances Make War In Art Not In Reality in New York City in the early 80s, the family collaboration will reappropriate the weapon to make non-violent paint explosions.
