Asifâ€™s Guns is a pop-up installation, showcasing more than 300 firearms handcrafted from cardboard by Asif Farooq.Â Curated to simulate an authentic gun store at a 400-square-foot retail space in the heart of Wynwood Arts District, Asifâ€™s Guns will be loaded with replicas that range from a traditional snub-nosed revolver to an M16 assault rifle. This installation will serve as a sweeping survey of contemporary weapons by the Miami-born artist, who is meticulously faithful to reproducing the size, shape and individual components of each gun model, using found cardboard boxes, an x-acto knife and glue. Asifâ€™s Guns is a romantic testament envisioned through the eyes of an artist raised in a gun-friendly environment, and delivered to the senses of a gun-obsessed America.Â Farooq challenges viewers to become aware of their instinctive reactions and principles as it relates to gun culture and the place of art, toys and iconography in probing controversial questions about communal and personal values.
