Abstract / Description of output

Neil Mulholland 'Special Feature'

Inspired by the art of Gavin Turk and the ideas in culture his work explores, This Is Not A Book About Gavin Turk is a collection of essays that reflect on big philosophical questions relating to art & life by way of small forensic details relating to apple cores, union jacks, Che Guevara t-shirts, doors and more commissioned at the request of the artist.

This Is Not A Book About Gavin Turk features thought-provoking and playful reflections on everything from advertising to Ariadne, chewing gum to celebrity, eggs to endgames and Sid Vicious to signatures written by an illustrious collection of art critics, novelists, cultural commentators, artists and psychoanalysts. Some of these essays refer directly to Turk’s work; many do not.
