Created at the time of the first Gulf War in 1991, the title of this work refers to The Sun newspaper’s instruction to place the printed flag ‘in your window’. By placing a colour photograph of himself over the newspaper’s Union Jack front page and positioning it in a museum display case, Turk holds up a mirror to cultural values and priorities. For Turk the mode of display forms a key part of his work’s subject: ‘At what point does the frame start and stop? I’m trying to frame the frame.’
