DESCRIPTION

AKA Peace is a new project curated by Jake Chapman in collaboration with non-profit organisation Peace One Day.

AKA Peace presents artworks in the form of decommissioned and customised AK-47 assault rifles by artists including Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Jeremy Deller, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Gavin Turk, Stuart Semple, Sarah Lucas and Sam Taylor-Wood.

The project, which coincides with Peace Day: Friday 21 September, aims to raise awareness of Peace Day and raise funds for Peace One Day’s Global Truce 2013 campaign.
