The winner will receive an award in the amount of 25 thousand pounds.
Award in the field of contemporary art named after William Turner received video artist Charlotte Prodger, who shot the film “Bridget” on her iPhone. It is reported by The Guardian.
Prodger said that she used an iPhone for her work, because she spent a lot of time alone with herself and began to notice how the phone became her “continuation”. The film of Charlotte lasts 32 minutes. She collected material for video throughout the year, taking pictures at home or traveling.
In her work are a lot of autobiographical moments. Charlotte herself explained that she was trying to study how the landscape, body, technology and time intersect. Many of the events in the film are intertwined randomly, raising issues of class, gender and sexuality.
When asked how she would manage her cash remuneration, Prodger replied that she would pay for the rent of the apartment and buy herself something, perhaps a new jacket.
The award was established in 1984 and is named after the English artist William Turner. The award is considered one of the most prestigious in the field of art, and the authors of provocative and bold works usually become its laureates.
