Gallery 1988 will release Daniel Danger’s first art toy in very limited quantities during the opening of his ‘they will take it back’ solo on Thursday, August 5th (7-10 PM). Based on one of Danger’s original sketches, the piece created by Pretty in Plastic takes the road less travelled recreating a scene rather than focusing on an isolated character. This design choice leads to a distinctive piece which pushes the parameters of ‘art toys’ -- a definite plus in our book. 1988 has only shown the above unpainted protos so far. We’re looking forward to seeing the finished piece which looks to deliver an unsettling, eerie experience.
