Oooh, isn't it exciting?

The Turnip Prize is just about to be announced. I wonder which of the worthy entrants will win. My money is on the bear, cos he's getting on and this might be his last chance. But then that wouldn't sway the jury would it? It's all about art, after all, innit?

This year's short list: Zarina Bhimji - Sisal Rope#67; Nathan Coley - Load of Bright Shite; Mike Nelson - War Zone; (Oh that's just a table sorry) ; Mark Wallinger - Refugee Isolation.

UPDATE: Guess what? Mark Wallinger DID win as predicted. He won the prize for his copy of Brian Haw's anti-war protest site in Parliament Square. One piece of overblown self indulgence followed by an exact replica. Big fucking deal!
