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.
