How To Blow Yourself Up: New Works by WK Interact

Turns out there’s another great show this Saturday in addition to the Michael, Kevin & Geoff show at HVW8. World class graffiti artist WK Interact is going to have a new exhibit at Submliminal Projects called How To Blow Yourself Up.

In How to Blow Yourself Up, WK Interact twists and inverts the fatalism of end-of-the-world prophecies, turning destruction into a matter of free will. “If you believe the world will end in 2012 and you can’t do anything about it, maybe it’s better to blow yourself up when you feel like it,” says WK. To that end, he has turned objects of control and personal movement – skateboards and bicycles, as well as three-dimensional panels – into instruments of self-destruction, equipped with what appear to be pipe bombs and other menacing apparatuses.

Should be an intense and amazing show.
