Dark Democracy

Casting a Dark Democracy

Casting a Dark Democracy represents the culmination of a body of work by sculptor Tim Shaw, to be shown for the first time at the Kenneth Armitage Foundation this autumn 2008. In 2007 Tim Shaw was awarded the Kenneth Armitage Fellowship, which has enabled him to live and work in the late sculptor’s studio residence in Kensington.This exhibition confronts issues of world conflict, particularly with the atrocities that have framed our reception of the war in Iraq. A major installation standing five metres in height is based on the now infamous image of the Abu Ghraib prisoner. Other works in the exhibition will include Man on Fire (2007-8) and Tank on Fire (2007-8). Tank on Fire has just won the Selectors' Choice award at the Threadneedle Figurative Prize.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell

war is terror
