A giant piece of chewed gum mounted on a wall as if discarded.

Turk has made many artworks using chewing gum, and this piece is from a series of large, manufactured blobs attached to the gallery wall. Another work from the same series is titled ‘Stucco’, playing on the fact that, while gum literally gets stuck to street furniture, ‘Stucco’ itself is a kind of fine plaster used for the ornate mouldings that you find in old buildings.
