Gavin Turk’s new exhibition is in a skip!

Skip Gallery have announced their latest collaboration with renowned YBA artist GavinTurk, who has created a special tasty treat for the Skip team.

From the lofty heights of Newport Street Gallery to a lowly skip, Turk has chosen to create a tongue-in-cheek piece that will have viewers hungry for more.

Turk’s piece, Transubstantiation provides viewers with a humorous commentary on consumerism that will be launched in Hoxton Square on Thursday 16th November.

Known for his subversive sculptural works that question artistic identity and authorship, Turk brings his classic style to the pop up gallery, questioning the very nature of a skip as a place to dispose of rubbish, and our relationship to what we choose to throw away.

Catherine Borowski says

“Skip Gallery’s latest installation with YBA artist GavinTurk is an exciting collaboration that takes an ironic look at the old adage that ‘modern art is a load of rubbish’.Turk’s piece is a reminder of the mundane everyday taken to its limit by its placement in the context of a gallery space.”

For this installation, Skip Gallery will return to its inaugural space in the car parking space opposite 19 Hoxton Square, London N1 6PB,
