Gavin Turk
Guevara reversed, from the portfolio ‘Faces’
Medium: Silkscreen with diamond dust, printed on Somerset satin
Year made: 2004
The chameleonic Gavin Turk attended the Royal College of Art where he successfully launched a critique of authorship, 'genius', and the history of the European avant-garde that he is still pursuing almost a decade later. This is a piece from the portfolio entitled Faces, a series of screen prints in which Turk draws visual parallels between himself and celebrities from the art world and beyond. By adopting something of the glamour attached to celebrities, he calls both his and our own position as participants in 'culture' into question.
Location: London
Date acquired: 30 September 2004
