We live in an age where we can't take sunscreen on a plane because of fear that it may be weapon. Artist Simon Pericich comments on these and other recent global paranoias with a display of over 60 hysterical renditions of dangerous looking artworks crudely yet obsessively fashioned out of common house-hold objects. The overwhelming arsenal for an imagined futuristic army keeps us hilariously safe from unknown benevolent forces, reminding viewers 'everything really isn't that bad'.
