Gavin Turk unveils first public sculpture

Posted at 3:30 pm, May 10, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

Gavin TurkOne New Change (the angular shopping mall next to St Paul’s Cathedral designed by Jean-Nouvel) is fast becoming a beacon for displaying interesting artwork and tomorrow sculptor Gavin Turk unveils his first public work there, the 12-metre bronze ‘Nail’. Turk told Time Out: ‘There is probably not one nail used in Nouvel’s building. I liked the juxtaposition of that with the cathedral behind and other buildings that once stood here. The nail suggests the wood that was pinned to the place in the past, as well as ‘nailing’ the place as a vision of the future.’
