” My intentions are not to create a specimen of the animal, but to use the image of the pigeon for its iconic association to the urban environment, as an allegorical portrayal of the city’s growth and expansion. Rather than the reputed bacterial scruff, I imagine a delightfully gigantic pigeon adorned with magnificent plumage, a grand display of baroque extravagance. In its stance I see both hubris and humility, its overbearing size a direct reflection of its city’s immoderation. ” – David Constantino Salazar

Ben Turnbull

p

Ben Turnbull is fascinated by the global dominance of American culture, and his works unsettling effects result from re-presenting the toys of our innocent youth in symbolic forms that reveal the shocking truths about war, death and guns in the world’s most powerful country. Above all they take a satirical look at the lengths that the country’s political elites go to in order to control and manipulate the way we think, from our first days of play to the last time we cast our vote. Turnbull is a passionate critic of the contemporary American political system, and explains why toys are central to his work: ‘Force fed on violence, abused by a controlling superpower and blackmailed through patriotism, the public are ultimately as disposable as the toys they once played with’. Ben Turnbull was born in 1974. He lives and works in London. ‘
