Josephine Pryde | Turner Prize Nominee 2016 | TateShots
Josephine Pryde 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 she has created to mark the time between her nomination for the Turner Prize and the opening of this exhibition.
Through photography and installation Pryde explores the very nature of image making and display. Her 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, 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.
