Arazzo fan da te [2012]

Turk, G (2018) Arazzo fan da te [2012]. In: Dialogues with a Collection, Laure Genillard Gallery, London, UK, 30 June - 15 September 2018.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Turk, G
Abstract: Gavin Turk’s practice often tackles issues of identity, authenticity and the ‘authorship’ of a work of art. Italian for “do it yourself tapestry”, the work title Arazzo Fan Da Te (2012) is exactly what it says on the box. Embroidered by Laure Genillard over the course of several weeks, the DIY kit comes with a set of instructions to create a Gavin Turk tapestry in the form of a ‘string-agram’ of the artist’s name in capital letters. The tapestry is a repeat of Turk’s homage to Italian conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti, who using this typeface created poetic tapestries investigating identity through collaboration and multiplication.
