This year’s Turner Prize finds British artists mining unconventional routes as much as traditional mediums. Beginning with Scottish-born Susan Philipsz, Philipsz offers unconventional recordings of herself singing under bridges.

turner-de la cruz

At first glance, Angela De La Cruz‘s sculpture/paintings/installations appear to be vandalized, existing in a state of disarray. However, De La Cruz sees a stretcher as referencing the human body–her choice of installation provides a reference to human presence.

turner dalwood

Dexter Dalwood also works with presence in his “historical” paintings that often reference historically relevant events in politics or the biography of celebrities. Yet, the narrative displayed is depicted from the objects surrounding the events/person.

turner-otolith group

The Otolith Group is perhaps the most uncanny of the group. A collective of curators and artists, they tackle broad topics from science fiction to feminism. Here, futurity plays a big role in tying together perhaps a seemingly disparate oeuvre.

The Turner Prize will be announced on October 4th with an exhibition at the Tate.
