Gavin Turk - Authorship and Identity | TateShots

3 Apr 12

Gavin Turk has long been interested in issues of authorship and identity; his artworks include images of himself disguised as Sid Vicious, Che Guevara and Andy Warhol amongst others. In his exhibition at Ben Brown Fine Arts in London, Turk pays hommage to the artist Alighiero Boetti, whose retrospective was at Tate Modern between 28 February - 27 May 2012. Boetti was a key member of Arte Povera, a group of young Italian artists in the late 1960s, who were working in radically new ways, using simple materials, to question authorship and identity themselves.
