Josephine Pryde Turner Prize 2016

Through photography and installation Pryde explores the nature of image making and display

Josephine Pryde's installations often include sculptural elements which highlight the context in which the work is displayed, placing as much importance on the staging of the work as the images themselves.

In her Turner Prize exhibition, she presents work from her nominated exhibition lapses in Thinking By the person i Am at CCA Wattis, San Francisco, alongside a series of new works. Photographs are joined by a stationed model of a train entitled The New Media Express in a Temporary Siding (Baby Wants To Ride) 2016. Tagged by graffiti artists from the cities in which it has previously been exhibited, the train is elevated on a platform, awaiting its next move.
