A giant golden sculpture of buttocks and more than £20,000 in pennies are among artworks in the running for this year’s Turner Prize.
An exhibition of the works by four shortlisted artists will go on display at the Tate Britain on Tuesday.
- Anthea Hamilton
Measuring around 16ft high, Hamilton’s Project For A Door (After Gaetano Pesce) is part of a series of “physical realisations” of images taken from the artist’s archive.
It also consists of a “brick suit” – a fabric suit which camouflages with the wall behind.
- Michael Dean
Michael Dean’s work includes a piece consisting of £20,435.99 in pennies, to represent “one penny below the UK poverty line for a family of four”.
- Josephine Pryde
Josephine Pryde’s installation features a train model entitled The New Media Express in a Temporary Siding (Baby Wants To Ride) 2016.
- Helen Marten
Helen Marten’s work features handmade as well as found objects such as cotton buds and fish skins to create “poetic visual puzzles”.
The winner of the contemporary art prize, which is now in its 32nd year, will be announced in December.
