Animal New York haben Coby Kennedy besucht. Der Mann macht post-apokalyptische Waffen aus Straßenschildern oder Verkaufsautomaten mit automatischen Waffen als Kommentar auf die Rolle von Firmen und Stadtentwicklung in städtischer Gewalt. Guter Mann, tolle Arbeiten, großartiges Blog.

Good enough to kill a motherfucker!” artist Coby Kennedy said, as he sharpened his New Lots Avenue street sign into a machete with a metal grinder. “I gotta make them the way they’re going to be made in the narrative — ripped off the street and hacked the fuck up.”

The “narrative” takes place 400 years from now in a post-Apocalyptic Brooklyn. All of Coby Kennedy’s artworks –the hyperrealistic paintings, the machine gun “vending machines,” the giant knife, sword and shield sculptures that double as film props – fit into that vision. In the future, the remaining native residents of Brooklyn defend themselves against invaders and each other. They use gleaned scrap and appropriated street signs to make weapons, the functional and deadly emblems of their heritage — Bedford Ave, Nostrand Ave, Malcolm X Blvd, etc.
