In Power Projection, Turk responds to the current political landscape through new, reconfigured, and older works. Turk has long incorporated cartographic imagery and cultural markings into his public art, sculpture, photography, and mixed media constructions. For this exhibition, he continues the use of maps, signage, and symbols within the context of the current political discord. Lifted from military terminology, Power Projection refers to a nation’s ability to use its political, economic, and military prowess to impact events on a global scale such as crisis response or bolster unstable relations between nations.
