LONDON.- CNB Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new works by British artist K-tee.

K-tee has long used weaponry in her work, and in this show she takes the distinctive American army MK II hand grenade, known colloquially as the ‘pineapple’, to create a series of small and medium scale sculptures.

The first series is comprised of four grenades molded in plastic. Each of these appears to have been bitten into, and reveals a soft centre filling – fondant egg, honeycomb, Turkish delight and caramel. The artist was first drawn to the idea after a friend who collects replica weapons showed her a decommissioned grenade, which she felt looked like something you might eat. The second series are the same grenades, but larger scale and bisected, which hang on the walls.

Says K-tee: ‘I love the engineering aspect of weapons in general ... they are deadly and nasty objects but not everyone sees them the way I do. I want the viewer to feel the same, to forget about what it does, almost to camouflage the object behind beautiful images.’

To complement the show, K-tee has teamed up with the award-winning chef Tom Kerridge and one of the world’s leading patisserie chefs, Claire Clark, to produce a limited edition set of grenades made out of chocolate. These will be sold at the gallery.

After attending the Kent Institute of Art and Design, K-tee spent fifteen years working in various props departments. She has worked on over thirty films, including Harry Potter, James Bond and Captain America. Her work has been exhibited at: Decoratum; Leydon Gallery; The Lulu Guinness store; Brick Lane Gallery; Beautiful Crime Gallery and Westbank Gallery.
