Terence Koh rapidly gained notoriety in the art world following his installation at Art Basel in 2007, which featured clumps of the artist’s own excrement covered in gold leaf. Such subversive gestures pay homage to Marcel Duchamp and the Dada movement, while other works such as Big White Cock (2006) examine symbols of gay subculture and the fetishization of objects.

Koh’s diverse oeuvre encompasses sculptures, installations, and performance works, raising questions that range from how to define the role of the artist to what constitutes “otherness” in contemporary society.
