Gavin Turk

Turk, G and Barrett, B (2004) Gavin Turk. New art up-close . Royal Jelly Factory, London. ISBN 0954636511


The book illustrates 25 carefully selected artworks spanning Turk's career, from his seminal blue-plaque work, 'Cave', through his many signature-based artworks, egg sculptures, and waxworks - including 'Pop', one of the truly iconic works of recent British art - to his more recent bronze casts of sleeping bags and bin bags. Also included are lesser-known works, some of which are reproduced for the first time, including documentation of performance and installation works. The interview with Turk focuses on the ideas behind his work: the nature of art itself, his use of popular celebrity and political imagery, and why it is that he makes art at all.
