Turner Prize 2012 winner: Elizabeth Price

"Elizabeth Price describes her films as moving 'from something that looks like a PowerPoint lecture, to something that looks like an infomercial to something that feels like a cinematic melodrama'. For the Turner Prize exhibition, Price is presenting her video installation THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979 2012. Comprising three parts, the video brings together distinct bodies of material into a dissonant assembly; photographs of church architecture, internet clips of pop performances and news footage of a notorious fire in a Woolworths furniture department in 1979. The film weaves together existing archives of text, image and sound to create video installations that drift between social history and fantasy."

Gillian Wearing: a fascination with social behaviour

"The artist's fascination with social behaviour has been influenced by the 1970s 'fly–on–the–wall' style of British documentary such as Franc Roddam and Paul Watson's The Family (1974) and Michael Apted's 7–Up (1964) and brings to mind the recent documentary "Capturing the Friedmans" by Andrew Jarecki."
