And the winner is….

After watching BBC programme “The Turner Prize 2016- The Nominees” day before the result have been actually announced I was so intrigued that I decided to see it for myself since I had some time off.

Tate Britain happened to be situated just across the river from one of my old workplaces where I have worked for a third-party debt management company. So pardon me but I had some message for them….

It’s good to be on the right side of the river now ūüôā


THE WINNER: HELEN MARTEN


She brings together a range of handmade and found objects from daily life. It has a playful intent, creating poetic, visual puzzle. I must say that is exactly what it does to you-leaves you puzzled.

ANTHEA HAMILTON


My friends wouldn’t be surprised if I said this artist was my favourite.

Inspired by a photograph showing a model by Italian designer Gaetano Pesce. Originally intended as a doorway to New York apartment. This made everyone giggle and attracted most attention.

This is something that I would wear myself to be honest. Love it.

And some¬†iron virgin pants as I called it. I was a bit dissapointed to find out that this beautiful sky was made by someone else so as the giant butt wasn’t painted by Anthea herself.

JOSEPHINE PRYDE


This was a brilliant idea. Items left on a kitchen worktop in a sunlight in London, Athens and Berlin.

Class 66 diesel locomotive. The carriages are tagged by graffiti artists from the cities where the train was previously exhibited.


MICHAEL DEAN


Ok so £20,436 is what government states is the minimum a family of 4, two adults and two children can survive in a year. Really? People who get shit loads of money can just decide without living a life of an average person? This is £20,436 in pennies without one penny which he removed to make it one penny less than the poverty line.

I am pretty sure he wasn’t the only one removing pennies ha

Hmm is this the secret to his creativity?

I think that the comment board was the best part of the exhibition….

And on your way out there was more butts and some over excited guy…

That is just one way to hang your Christams tree. This is rather anti-children and anti-cat.

Overall it was good to see the exhibition for myself plus had a chance to see what’s new in Tate Britain since I haven’t been here for a while. I was kind of hoping that if I see their art for myself especially winner’s Helen Marten I would understand it more. I must say that without the description on the wall I wouldn’t know much what she meant by it. This is type of art that I am not so much keen on but I will always give it a chance.
