Gavin Turk on impersonating Elvis, Ford transit vans, and the problems of careful consumption.
By Justin Hopper
The neighborhood around Gavin Turk’s East London studio is exactly what naysayers said the 2012 Olympics would bring. In the shadow of the still- resonating stadium, this semi-circular road is littered with barbed wire and discarded McDonald’s wrappers; empty warehouses and the cold, sign-less facades that seem more like a ’70s J.G. Ballard paperback cover than 2013 London.
Gavin Turk discusses his inaugural exhibition at David Nolan Gallery and is interviewed by Charlie Rose. You can watch the full interview online by clicking on this link.
