The shortlist for the Turner Prize has been announced and with it is a number of pieces that some folk might find difficult to realise as art (as per usual). The Guardian newspaper describes Simon Starling’s ‘Shedboatshed’ thus:

Starling’s installation will keep alive the Turner’s tradition of eccentricity. The artist describes Shedboatshed as ‘a reinterpretation of the idea of mobile architecture’. The structure started life as a wooden shed on the banks of the Rhine, which Starling spotted while cycling past. He dismantled it and used the wood to construct a traditional Wiedling boat, in which he drifted downstream to the centre of Basle in Switzerland.
