Daniel Turner

1 Jun – 31 Aug 2018

Hauser & Wirth Somerset is pleased to welcome Daniel Turner as artist-in-residence this Summer.

Daniel Turner is a New York based artist working primarily in sculpture involving the creation or manipulation of materials, objects and environments into tactile atmospheric forms. His work is often characterized by a specific response to materials under a controlled setting or set of processes. This approach has enabled Turner to base form on transposition, allowing the artist to distill environments directly into the realm of public architecture. These elements are present in former works where an entire waiting room is cast into a series of solid bars, a former psychiatric facility reduced to a darkened stain against an exhibition wall, or a cafeteria dissolved across the expanse of a floor.

Daniel Turner was born in 1983 in Portsmouth, Virginia. He received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2006 and currently lives and works in New York NY. His work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions including; The Chinati Foundation (Marfa, TX), Objectif Exhibitions (Antwerp, Belgium), Galerie im Taxispalais (Innsbruck, Austria), Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève/Fondation Arditi (Geneva, Switzerland), Université Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris, France), Le Confort Moderne, (Poitiers, France), Virginia Commonwealth University, (Richmond, VA), Hauser & Wirth Gallery, (New York, NY) and the University of California San Diego (La Jolla, CA). Turner served as a visiting scholar at New York University from 2009-2010 and was awarded The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship Award from 2004-2009.
