Aspex and Gunwharf Quays welcome Stephen Turner's Exbury Egg to Portsmouth.


The Exbury Egg is located in Gunwharf Quays' central pond, City Quay, as a monumental sculptural presence from mid May 2017 for over three months.

A month after the Egg is installed in the quay, the exhibition, ‘Everything Comes from the Egg’ will open at Aspex. This offers visitors an opportunity to see the range of artworks, ephemera and documentation, Stephen has made and collected over the course of the project. This is a comprehensive exhibition comprising drawings, prints, photographs, found objects, works on paper, sculptures and video made by Turner over the last four years.

Stephen will also be continuing his exploration of places and communities as the gallery's Artist in Residence through May 2017.

The project combines Turner’s ongoing environmental, historical and cultural investigations into the natural world with a sustainable artistic practice and a temporary ‘hermit’ lifestyle. During solo residencies in the Egg on the River Beaulieu in Exbury, New Forest in 2013-2014 and by the Leeds & Liverpool Canal for Super Slow Way in Burnley (2016), Turner catalogued his forays in each location in collections of digital imagery, objects, drawings and personal maps.
