Music to Her Ears: Susan Philipsz Wins Turner Prize

Posted By Administration, Monday, December 6, 2010

This year's winner sculpted with sound, becoming the first Turner Prize recipient to make a work that could not be seen.

The announcement of this year's winner was controversial; some cries of protest were heard, but to many the work was embraced as beautiful and moving. Originally created and installed in open air under a series of three bridges for the Glasgow International art festival in May, the work was reconfigured for an interior space at the Tate. The sound is of the artist herself singing Lowlands Away, a traditional Scottish song.

The Guardian covers this story with video-feed interview, click here to view.
