Craig Fisher's second solo exhibition at Rokeby, Hold Your Fire, is an ambitious installation that at first appears to jar with the artist's previous concerns. On the ground floor of the gallery Fisher presents what appears to be a weapons amnesty. Numerous weapons of varying sizes are carefully and formally laid out as if for inspection. And inspect you might, because each piece of military hardware is in fact meticulously crafted from utilitarian materials and fabrics, the handles and blades, knuckle dusters and chainsaws made from careful stitch work, embellished with ribbons and buttons.
