Multimedia artist Elizabeth Price has been announced winner of this year's coveted £25,000 Turner Prize for a trio of video installations exhibited earlier this year at Gateshead's BALTIC. 

She was awarded the prestigious accolade at a ceremony hosted at Tate Britain yesterday, Monday 3 December.

The winning artwork, The Woolworths Choir of 1979, is a trio of videos featuring digital moving image, text and music. They re-examine existing archive film, music and imagery to explore our relationship with objects and contemporary consumer culture. View an excerpt from one of the videos here.

The films were exhibited earlier this year at the Arts Council National portfolio organisation, BALTIC, as part of Price's solo show, Here.

You can see the winning pieces, alongside shortlisted artworks by fellow Turner Prize nominees Spartacus Chetwynd, Paul Noble and Luke Fowler, at Tate Britain until 6 January 2013.
