L'Âge d'Or (Green)

Painted Bronze

H3620 x W1550 x D1500 mm


Disembodied from any room, structure or building, this oversized painted wooden door, which appears from its peeling varnish, to have been left to the elements from some years, opens or closes (depending on which way you look at it) onto infinite possibilities and nothingness, alike. A playful homage to William Blake’s famous doors of perception and Rene Magrittes' painting 'La Victoire', visitors are invited to walk through Turk’s trompe l'oieil door into the enchanting realms of the imagination and beyond. As ever the work highlights philosphical contradictions and is a key work within Turks oeuvre.
