TateShots provides a behind the scenes glimpse into the process of Charlotte Prodger, 2018 Turner Prize-winning single-channel video entitled simply, ‘BRIDGIT’.
Since its inception in 1984, the Turner Prize has become a driving force in encouraging a wider interest in contemporary British artists and their work. The inspiration for the name can be traced back to nineteenth-century artist J.M.W. Turner, who in his day was considered innovative and controversial and who today is considered to be one of the greatest British artists.
2018 Turner prize-winning artist, Charlotte Prodger follows in the long history of producing innovative and controversial work through her single-channel video titled, ‘BRIDGIT’. Shot solely through the lens of her mobile phone, Charlotte uses technology available to almost every tech-savvy individual to create work that explores issues surrounding queer identity, landscape, language, technology and time.
