Challenging notions of authorship and the institution of art, Gavin Turk has reworked many of the iconic works of modern art. This journey of appropriation has included re-inventions of work by Marcel Duchamp, Yves Klein, Pierre Manzoni and Andy Warhol. Turk's trip has been one of self-invention too, with the artist regularly taking on new guises, from Rene Magritte to pop anti-hero Sid Vicious. Though much of Turk's musing takes place among the hallowed halls of the art gallery and museum, he has not overlooked the ordinary stuff of life - in particular the everyday materials and images of the urban street scene.
