British artist put up a bag of trash for $65.5 thousand




At the London auction, Phillips put up a bag of trash. The starting price of the exhibit called The Dump is $65.5 thousand. Reported by the Indian edition of the Republic.

This is actually an installation by British artist Gavin Turck. The figure is in the shape of a bag full of rubbish, made of bronze and painted black.

According to the artist, The Dump's job is to make us rethink the value of art and the labor that goes into creating it.

This is not the first such work of Turck. In 2004, sold another “garbage bag” at the same auction. He was taken from under the hammer for $34,000.

Gavin Turk has been creating bronze figures for over 20 years — visual trickery. Among his famous works are sculptures of a watermelon, a cardboard box, and a parcel post.
