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.

Newport Street Gallery in London presents ‘Now’ a solo exhibition of work by American artist Jeff Koons spanning 35 years.
Estelle Lovatt is an Art Critic: “The childhood sculptures are trying to take us right back to our earliest form of communication, how we sculpt with play doh or plasticine. You know it’s wonderful, how we touch and feel, messy play, and it’s trying to get rid of our inhibitions, it’s also trying to say; ‘Listen, everything and anything is art’.”
Jeff Koons: ‘Now’, runs from 18 May 2016 to 16 Oct 2016 and contains sexually explicit material.
