Ben Turnbull Exhibition

We all have our favourite toys from when we were kids - Star Wars AT AT Walker - but we don't remember any of them being as sinister as artist Ben Turnbull's creations. Taking toys from the seventies and eighties, Turnbull re-interprets our beloved pieces of plastic as statements about global politcs, war, and guns. Now, thanks to Eleven, large chunks of his impressive back catalogue are about to go on show in London. Ahead of the opening, we obtained a selection of the sculptures that will be on show.

Ben Turnbull, A.C.M.E, 1-22 October 2010, 37 Kingsway, London, WC2, Opening hours, Wednesday - Saturday 11am - 6pm
