'Gold Triple Pop' (2009) registers the reverberations of history surrounding Turk's own iconic wax-work sculpture Pop (1993) - Gavin Turk as Sid Vicious as Elvis Presley. Layers of meaning, interpretation and misinterpretation are the fate of a work like Pop (1993) which has been endlessly reproduced and is held up as a key moment in the history of the so called 'YBAs'. The black overlapping repeated figures in 'Gold Triple Pop' suggest a fractured, hall of mirrors version of history, while the gold background, though partially submerged below the black, is still visible and gives an alluring shimmer to the work.
Challenging notions of authorship and the institution of art, Gavin Turk has reworked many of the iconic works of modern art. This journey of appropriation has included re-inventions of work by Marcel Duchamp, Yves Klein, Pierre Manzoni and Andy Warhol. Turk's trip has been one of self-invention too, with the artist regularly taking on new guises, from Rene Magritte to pop anti-hero Sid Vicious. Though much of Turk's musing takes place among the hallowed halls of the art gallery and museum, he has not overlooked the ordinary stuff of life - in particular the everyday materials and images of the urban street scene.
