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.
