A female-dominated shortlist for this year’s Turner Prize has been announced as Lubaina Himid, Rosalind Nashashibi, Andrea Büttner and Hurvin Anderson. It is the first since the age limit was abolished earlier this year, which has worked in favour of two of the four artists – Lubaina and Hurvin – who previously would not have been eligible for the prize as they’re over 50.
Antony Mark David Gormley, OBE, RA (b 1950) is a British sculptor. His work attempts to treat the body not as an object but a place and in making works that enclose the space of a particular body to identify a condition common to all human beings. The work is not symbolic but indexical – a trace of a real event of a real body in time. Gormley won the Turner Prize in 1994 with Field for the British Isles. #fineart #inspirationsart #rareart #uniqueart #beautifullart #bestdesignart
