A Rather Large Weapon
Featured in this provocatively titled fourth issue of the always intriguing Happy Hypocrite are clever stories, images, a blackboard, an interview, surveillance photos, heroes, and photos of the pages of the notorious Canadian Indian Act of 1867 blasted with a Lee Enfield 308 sniper’s rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun by Native American artist Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptan. A biannual journal featuring writing by artists, The Happy Hypocrite is informed by a lineage of modern experimental and avant-garde magazines. “Necessity is pressing and pressing hard,” proclaims the last page. Contributors include Bernadette Buckley, Jeff Derksen, Candice Hopkins, Anthony Iles, Daniel Kane, Yve Lomax, Robert Longo, Sean Lynch, Laura Oldfield Ford, Luke Pendrell, Rachelle Sawatsky, Mark von Schlegell, Natasha Soobramanien and Nick Thurston.
