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.
