VISUAL ARTS: EXIT POLL - Who will win the Turner Prize?
Sunday 28 November 1999
FILM RUNNER, 29
It was interesting having Tracey Emin first, because you got hit by all this emotional baggage. You feel quite drained. But I also think she's brave. I mean, what a life! It was quite hard for the others to outshine her. I liked Steve McQueen's Deadpan, I thought it was mesmerising.
I don't think I could make a quick judgement about the winner. I liked Steven Pippin's washing machines, that was a novel idea, a sort of fish's-eye lookout. But I suppose Tracey has the edge, because she's been more daring, and she's been able to relate to the darker aspects in all of us.
Tracey Emin I already know, because she went to the same foundation as me. I hadn't really heard much about the others. I think Jane and Louise Wilson do good work. Steve McQueen is also good. If I was on the jury, and had to be really critical, it would have to be the Wilsons.
I think the people who award the prize will give it to the Wilson sisters, because of their Serpentine show - which was a lot better than the work they've got here. Steve McQueen's Deadpan, with the falling building, was excellent, one of the strongest pieces in the show overall.
The winner of the Turner Prize is announced at the Tate Gallery, London, SW1, on Tuesday. Live coverage on Channel 4 from 8pm
