Gavin Turk is a British born, international artist recognised as being part of the YBA’s. He has pioneered many forms of contemporary British sculpture now taken for granted, including painted bronze, waxwork, recycled art-historical icon and the use of rubbish in art.

Turk’s installations and sculptures deal with issues of authorship, authenticity and identity. Concerned with the ‘myth’ of the artist and the ‘authorship’ of a work, Turk’s engagement with this modernist, avant-garde debate stretches back to the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp.
