A brief introduction to one of the nominees for the 2012 Turner Prize
Her solo exhibition at BALTIC, Gateshead.
Who she is
Bradford-born Price began working in sculpture in the late 1980s, moving into video in recent years. Her video installations, narrated only by on-screen messages, use existing archives of imagery, text and music to explore our relationship with the material world.
What they say
‘One moment didactic, then cryptic, then exclamatory… Price’s videos veer from critical meditation on the politics of art, the history of modernity and the corrupt logic of taxonomy, into passages of apocalyptic, hallucinated exuberance.’ JJ Charlesworth, Art Review
