Gavin Turk – Transubstantiation
Ready-made, 2017

Partnering with the London-based Skip Gallery, an improvised gallery space inside a huge waste container you usually see on the side of the street filled with construction rubble and whatnot, Turk has created a tongue-in-cheek piece that is, among all things, very meta.

Inside the skip – a place to dispose of rubbish – we see a packet of Skips prawn cocktail, a popular snack in the UK. According to the artist, the chips reminded him of the sacramental bread used in the ritual of Eucharist by Roman Catholics.

    Keith Haring – Chalk Street Art

    Keith Haring was an unusual character among the many street art legends that emerged from the New York graffiti scene, more of which you can read about in 20th Century & the Rise of Graffiti. While many graffiti and artists took to leaving their distinctive graffiti on trains and walls with spray cans, Keith Haring could be found merging experimental performance art with his graffiti street art, usually created in white chalk on black backgrounds.
