Spray Grenade ( SG09/3#01), 2009
Aluminium, Brass, Steel., 3.25" x 8.25" x 3.25"
Spray Grenade ( SG09/3#01) is one of a series of sculptural objects from The Weapons of Mass Consumption series created by Aideen Barry. In her Dystopian Domestic investigations the artist bastardizes the familiar domestic cleaning object with that of a weapon. The artist was diagnoised with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in 2006 and since then has been exploring the nature of this uncanny illness through a playful manipulation of forms that combine the familiar and the threating in an unhomely / das unheimlich fashion.
