Gavin Turk has pioneered many forms of contemporary British sculpture, 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.
In 1991, the Royal College of Art refused Turk a degree on the basis that his final show, 'Cave', consisted of a whitewashed studio space containing only a blue heritage plaque commemorating his presence 'Gavin Turk worked here 1989–91'. Instantly gaining notoriety through this installation, Turk's work has since been collected and exhibited by many major museums and galleries throughout the world.
Solo exhibitions include: Who What When Where How and Why Newport St Gallery, London (2016), Yard, CCA Andratx (2015), Seven Billion Two Hundred and One Million Nine Hundred and Sixty-Four Thousand and Two Hundred and Thirty-Eight, The Bowes Museum, UK (2014), GT – The Project, Ecole Supérieure d'Arts Plastiques de la Ville de Monaco, (2013), Burnt Out, Kunsthaus Baselland (2008), Gavin Turk: Oeuvre, Tate Britain (2002), Copper Jubilee, The New Art Gallery Walsall (2002), The Stu Show, South London Gallery (1998).

Wisdom, wit and the right amount of weirdness are three things that come naturally to moustacheod artist Gavin Turk. The original YBA is known for his radical approach to contemporary sculpture, his vocal politics, and his talent for mimicry—in the halcyon days of the early 90s he impersonated everyone from punks to Pollock.
