A.P.G.A – Henry Turner
In A.P.G.A artist Henry Turner draws together a diverse body of paintings, sculpture, a bound volume and stitched clothing in an immersive exploration of religion and irreligion, faith, divination and city-making rich with literary, historical and cultural references. Meticulously executed, intriguing in their multiplicity of form and allusion, the works in A.P.G.A frame a unique line of inquiry into human belief.
“I do think the theatrical is underestimated as a force in politics. That aspect of things is relevant to everyone, everywhere. That is why shrines are quite similar all over the world –¬ they are all read in the same way, they are all expressions of some kind of religious consciousness. We can look at a data centre, the workings of which we don’t understand, but we trust the people know what they are doing. It is all about scale, power and control” – Henry Turner, 2022
