Turner Prize 2012 in quotes
I work intentionally to try and make dense, complex things. We can move between genres and forms, from something that looks like a PowerPoint lecture to something that looks like an informercial to something that looks like a cinematic melodrama.
One of the most demanding and thoughtful [exhibitions] in the show’s history.
Adrian Searle, Guardian
Impressive for all the right reasons… both appropriately mad and actually interesting.
