Gavin Turk: his work is mature and yet provocative; he has made a living as an artist and not sold out; and his ideas retain an urgency from not being overstated. But who is Gavin Turk? This exhibition provides a timely opportunity to unravel one of the forgotten stars of the YBA movement. Turk’s practice has often revolved around ideas concerning authorship, authenticity and value. ‘The Years’ reminds us that Turk handles these ideas with great intellectual subtlety rather than manufacturing...

The paintings of Georges Meurant are symptomatic... [more]

Sculpture – in particular, busts – has been a way of figuration, but British artist Gavin Turk has decided that sculpture is a means of disfiguration. Especially when the subject is him. A new show, "En Face," at Almine Rech Gallery in Paris features a group of 72 clay busts of Turk, that, during a party that was also a kind of performance, were shaped, deformed, marred or changed somehow by the guests while the clay was still wet. The busts are arranged in two rooms at the gallery.... [more]

      A Peeping Tom – someone who pries, who looks when it is inappropriate to do so, who is curious with a side of sleaze.  It is a phrase with negative connotations and implications of unpleasantness and preying on the vulnerable.  Is it a phrase we should use in the context of contemporary artists?  Perhaps.  Many are drawn to issues that make their viewers uncomfortable, and many look at the world in a way that the rest of us try to avoid.  But do they look because they want to,...
