Post Turner Prize

December 21, 2017

I think the adrenaline has finally dropped out of my body.  Lubaina Himid was always the winner in my mind, but Lubaina was convinced that she wouldn't win, and I started to think that my joking that 'I was with the winner', or '...in the winner's room', started to make me think that I might jinx the result.  But it didn't.  I had a brilliant time at the awards ceremony, once I had got over my moment of tears (at that point I wasn't drunk).  As I said to Lubaina, when I was little I thought she was the coolest, cleverest most talented and beautiful person I had ever met; I still do.  Thanks to everyone who has sent lovely messages of congratulation, which I have of course passed on to Lubaina.

 

Since the prize I have been thinking a lot about the Quest for the Perfect Shirt.  I had a conversation on Tuesday (19th December) with Kate Sweeney.  She asked a really pertinent question about how the body is put back into the empty shirts.  It's a very good question, because otherwise I am making a project about masculine/non-masculine pattern, design and fabric - the things that make a shirt, rather than the masculinity that the shirts envelope and embody.  I don't have an answer (yet!) but it is a question I shall ponder over Christmas.

You can help me in my quest?  Tell me about your perfect shirt. Why is it perfect? What memories does it hold? What does it remind you of?
