Turk, G and Wolf, J (2017) Cracks in Reality: Gavin Turk / Jens Wolf. Marta Herford GmbH, Herford, Germany, 2 April - 2 July 2017.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Turk, G and Wolf, J
Abstract: What is reality and where do its abstraction, original and copy, overlap? Today the boundaries are in flux and are repeatedly dissolving. With the exhibition, "Cracks in Reality - Gavin Turk/ Jens Wolf', Marta Herford pre­sents two artists from its own collection whose works correspond with each other in dialogue form: Gavin Turk, who belongs to the generation of Young British Artists, and Jens Wolf, a representative of new abstraction in painting. Almost forty works, including large-format paintings, filigree sculptures and a temporary mural work created especially for the exhibi­tion, open up a space to think about appropriation and imitation, all the while pointing up astonishing references to art history. Concepts of au­thorship and originality are scrutinized here by both artists with an ironic, critical undertone.
