In 2014, F&R R&F dedicated a month of their artistic practice to the idea of a ‘sweatshop’, making as many guns as possible. The basis of the idea was simple: how many different variations of ‘gun’ can one make starting with simple wooden sticks? In the end, R&F F&R made over 400 wooden guns. After sharing their process on social media, links to compulsive disorders, ‘Kaliloze’ Night Guns, voodoo practices, child soldiers, LEGO-DIY gun manuals, and much more was suggested. This resulted in ‘GUNS’, their first artist publication (APE #54, Ghent) followed by exhibitions worldwide.
