Gavin Turk and OUTPOST are pleased to present the gallery’s first independently selected members’ show drawn from submissions to the OUTPOST artist members’ archive.

The twenty selected artists (from a membership of 240) represent the diversity of practice and material contained within the members’ archive. The works range from a single re-contextualised museum label to a subterranean steam installation in the courtyard of the gallery. Between these acts of appropriation (Thompson) and humour (Davenport), Turk’s selection reveals a somewhat classical strain, with over a third of the exhibiting artists presenting works employing painting and drawing.

Rising to the challenge of staging a large group show within the modestly sized space of OUTPOST, Turk’s deliberations have pulled together a sense of the elemental from each artist, with the individual pieces discernibly chosen for their potential to interact as a whole.

Gavin Turk
Lives and works in London and has exhibited extensively, including participation in such important group exhibitions as Istanbul Biennial (1999), ‘Century City’, Tate Modern, London (2001), ‘Remix: Contemporary Art and Pop’, Tate Liverpool (2002) and ‘Coollustre’, Collection Lambert en Avignon (2003). Solo exhibitions include South London Gallery (1998), Centre d’Art Contemporain in Geneva (2000), The New Art Gallery, Walsall (2002) and Schloss Eggenberg, Graz (2006). Gavin Turk is represented by White Cube, London.

OUTPOST
Is an artist run gallery based in Norwich. It was founded in November 2004 with financial support form Arts Council England East, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council and Norwich Gallery. It presents a core programme of 12 exhibitions per year – selected from the membership archive and a wider remit – each exhibition opening on the 1st of the month. A programme of events is also run that includes film nights, critical forums, group exhibitions and artists’ talks.

OUTPOST members archive
Is a physical collection of documentary material housed at OUTPOST. Members of the gallery’s artist membership scheme (for details see www.norwichoutpost.org/about.html) are entitled to submit documentation of their practice in any format (not exceeding A4), with the material used to select the exhibition program and as a source from which independent curators can gain a greater knowledge of members’ works. An index of the archive material is in the process of being placed online.

Does any of Hitler’s other conceptual artwork really match the somber power of his Auschwitz period?

Two Book Covers

Here are two book covers I’ve done recently.

The one for ‘A Light-Hearted Look At Murder’ made it to publication.
The one for ‘Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs’ didn’t.

That’s show-business…

Silk-Screen Prints

I’m releasing my first print editions for 2007 with a new company; ‘Product of God’. Product of God is an online art gallery specialising in the sale of really high-quality editions from modern graphic artists – they also represent David Foldvari and Jasper Goodall amongst others. Both are hand-printed by me on Fabriano Artistico acid-free rag-paper with the deckle edge left on. The ‘Fuckin Hell’ globe is printed in five colours and the ‘Politics of Fear’ one is in eight colours. There are only 50 of each – and there will never be any more. They are signed and numbered by me as well. These are real fine-art quality silk-screen prints – not digital prints.

Hybrid Vehicles

In the rush to save the world I have developed these concept vehicles where carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced to virtually zero. Need I say that each design is protected by international patent and copyright law. So, Toyota, if you start copying my stuff then I’ll see you in court…
