Yes

2008

Originally created for the Free Art Fair – a pun on the Frieze Art Fair – Yes was a series of fruit stickers which Turk handed to visitors attending Frieze from his unofficial stall at the entrance to the official fair. The stickers, which were given out for free, transformed visitors into both art and pieces of fruit, in a subversive exploration of how art is valued and whether or not it needs a price in order to be called art at all.  Yes also references Turk’s bronze painted apple cores and melons which, hinting at things both sold and discarded on the street, are also part of his ongoing investigation into the value of art and its place in the world.
