The statement on the back cover of this accordion explains everything about this unique area of McKeown's artistic practice!
"Michael McKeown constructs large-scale sculptures of found materials and trashcans, designed as parodies of weapons of mass destruction. McKeown's work offers a socio-political critique of global militarization, particularly drawing on his memories of the Cold War and the consequences of global nuclear armament. His choice of materials and inventive designs address with tongue-in-cheek the artist's understanding of the "colossal waste of resources" that the global arms race perpetuates."
