New year, new Turner Prize

Four new artists have just been nominated as shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2013' edition.
The nominees are: Laure Prouvost, Tino Sehgal, David Shringley and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Congratulations to all of them!!!

I feel particularly supportive to artist Laure Prouvost, who I had the chance to meet some years ago in London at a bus stop. We were both coming out from a conference on British Films where she was speaking and I was listening. We had a very nice conversation on our way back home (we discovered that we were living closeby, somewhere in Hackney). I always kept a very nice memory of this meeting and I found myself to support her work since then. So a double good luck to Laure Prouvost from me!!!

Turner Prize 2013

Please read below more information about the new nominations.

Turner Prize 2013 shortlist announced

Tate Britain today announced the four artists who have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2013. This year the exhibition will be held at Ebrington in Derry-Londonderry as part of the UK City of Culture 2013. The artists are (in alphabetical order): Laure Prouvost, Tino Sehgal, David Shrigley and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.



Laure Prouvost
Prouvost was born
in Lille, France
Laure Prouvost

For her new work Wantee commissioned with Grizedale Arts for inclusion in Schwitters in Britain at Tate Britain and for her two-part installation for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, resulting from a residency inItaly and presented in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery. Her unique approach to filmmaking, often situated within atmospheric installations, employs strong story telling, quick cuts, montage and deliberate misuse of language to create surprising and unpredictable work.

Tino Sehgal
For his pioneering projects This Variation at documenta (XIII)and These Associations at Tate Modern. Both structured and improvised, Seghal’s intimate works consist purely of live encounters between people and demonstrate a keen sensitivity to their institutional context. Through participatory means, they test the limits of artistic material and audience perception in a new and significant way.

David Shrigley
For his solo exhibition at Hayward Gallery David Shrigley: Brain Activity which offered a comprehensive overview and new perspectives on his work. Including not only his well-loved drawings but also photography, sculpture and film, the exhibition revealed his black humour, macabre intelligence and infinite jest.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye
For her exhibition Extracts and Verses at Chisenhale Gallery. Yiadom-Boakye’s intriguing paintings appear traditional but are in fact much more innovative. Her portraits of imaginary people use invented pre-histories and raise pertinent questions about how we read pictures in general, particularly with regard to black subjects.
