Turner Prizewinner 2011.

So,

.

Art though having a good day then…. Good!

.

Talking of art, it has just been announced that the Glasgow artist Martin Boyce, 44, has won this year’s prestigious Turner Prize.

.

The presentation was made by the much admired Mario Testino …. who was somewhat disconcerted by the unscripted appearance onstage of a large man wearing a pink tutu.

Unfortunately, the actual announcement of the winner’s name was somewhat lost, in the clamour of it all!
.

.

His winning work is entitled ‘Perforated And Porous (Northern Skies)’, and is a re-created park scene, the centrepiece of which is a waste basket.

.

.

The work was described by the judges as being a pioneering piece of art and as having a ‘new sense of poetry’.

.

There is a chance to view the shortlisted works at the Gateshead Baltic centre until January 8th 2012.
