David Knight - 18th Feb 2016

Into his familiar mis-en-scene, Hiro Murai introduces something powerful, brutal and mesmerizing, for Baauer's Day Ones.

The Revolutionary Wars come to the night-shrouded 'hood - plus powdered wigs and floating candleabra. A study in contrasts, with typically memorable Murai imagery, and a reminder of where the right to bear arms started, and how it often ends.
