Brian Griffiths, Boneshaker, 2003
"Brian Griffiths is a backyard crusader for the sticky stuff of legend. His monumental scale sculptures are portals for adventure: cardboard box space ships, garbage bin knights, and bathroom caulking astronauts. Boneshaker is a magical time-travelling gypsy caravan, entirely constructed from tables and hand-carved wooden ornaments found in South London antique markets. Griffiths trades on the ‘secret histories’ of the second-hand conversation pieces, using their authenticity to falsify an exotic, more ‘ancient’ history of his own."
