The Turner Prize 2010
The BBC report the 'contact' Camilla had with one of the protesters last week. This 'news' is headlines on the BBC website. Am I in the least interested? No. Because if it had been you or me who had been surrounded with those involved in an emotional protest, it would never have even made the 24-hour news channels. We don't matter you see, but royalty does. In the eyes of some of our politicians.
Thankfully 47 Film, have uploaded the rough cut of the final film Lowlands which was submitted to the Turner Art Committee for judgement. Susan Philipz is the Glasgow born artist who won this year's controversial prize.
I've watched/listened to it once then listened to it once. It only comes to life for me when I also view the film which was shot under the George V bridge by the River Clyde in Glasgow. All credit to the film-maker as well as the singer. It's excellent. Unsurprisingly not everyone agrees with me. I did say the Turner Prize was controversial.
