Using guns and ammunition, Al Farrow transforms the tools of destruction into creation in his sculptures of cathedrals, synagogues, mosques, mausoleums, and other architectural monuments. By doing so, he denigrates no one belief, being mindful and respectful of all. This exhibition, composed of just one sculpture, the artist’s 2018 The White House, is replete with irony, marked by the contradiction between its title and the somber, rusted exterior that insinuates the corrosion of long-held ideals.
