  • Posted 71 months Ago

Tonight, actor Jude Law presented video artist Elizabeth Price with the 2012 Turner Prize at Tate Britain in London. The Yorkshire-born artist uses archival images, text and music to produce artworks based around our relationship to consumer culture. The winning film is an all-enveloping audio visual experience called The Woolworths Choir of 1979 which features rhythmic finger clicks and ritualistic hand-claps throughout and, according to the judges, "reflects the ambition that has characterised her work in recent years."

Previous notable winners of the award include Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Steve McQueen and Grayson Perry.
