10 Artists, including Gavin Turk, Jake & Dinos Chapman and Jeremy Deller have been asked by Secret 7″ to design a one-off turntable for the Planar 1/1 exhibition, to be auctioned on-line with the proceeds going to the mental health charity Mind. Each artist was given a blank Rega Planer turntable and were given free reign to add there own creation onto the turntable. The Re-Designs follows a set of artists including Anish Kapoor who created one off record sleeves for Secret 7″ earlier this year.
The turntables include a Gavin Turk ‘Blue Plaque’ design, referencing his Cave piece, Stuart Semple’s nod to Joy Division, including lyrics from Disorder, The Chapman brothers colour etching and James Joyce’s Smiley faces. The 10 Turntables will be on display at The Ace Hotel Lobby in Shoreditch until tomorrow evening when they will be auctioned, there will be a public event in the Hotel lobby on the night including a Dj set by Gavin Turk and Pete Fowler.
