- Fragments - Carrara marble, original body sizes of the artist, 2015 Installation view Blain/Southern Gallery London. Tur's series of works -Fragments- refers on classical antique sculptures he was surrounded during his one year residency in Rome. Tur was inspired by the missing parts of the bodies like nose, toe, head, etc. The reason for those missing parts is mostly not the result of erosion or accident but more the results of deliberated actions during times of social changes, economic problems and religious fanaticism. Tur's -Fragments- are not broken parts of former intact bodies. They are specifically made as independend sculptures out of the own body of the artist. Made up of original Carrara marble, the sculptures appearance makes the fragility of the human body and its existence in cultural history palpable.
