£450.00

Overall size: Dia7 cm

Gavin Turk is a British born international artist. He has pioneered many forms of contemporary British sculpture now taken for granted, including the painted bronze, the waxwork, the 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.

Having previously made work with tea stains on watercolour paper, Gavin Turk views tea (and biscuits) as essential to the clichéd cultural history of Britain as a tea-drinking nation. He then produced a limited edition run of signed Rich Tea biscuits as a nod to the famous Max Ernst blue painted baguette that was attached to one of the artist’s famous books. It’s circular form, meanwhile, is broken by the artist’s bite – an echo of the bite of an apple, symbol of Britishness but also lost innocence, which poses the question, what knowledge has the artist gained from his taste of it?
