Default Turner Prize 2007

So this year's Turner Prize goes to Mark Wallinger, who has re-created the banners & posters of Martin Haw's Peace Camp, that existed from 2001 to 2006 in Parliament Square before new laws were drafted & it was demolished by police....

As a political statement it deserves merit, as he has created a new medium to continue a protest that was silenced by an act of parliament - but does it deserve the Turner Prize as a work of art? All he has done is re-create something that was created by others?

nothing wrong with a bit of Beaujolais

The Turner prize is always weird if you ask me.

Beaujolaise is okay, Beaujolaise New is pants, the big hype about race to get the 1st bottle.

Not necessarily...I recall a delicious Beaujolais Nouveau back in the mid-90s.

Sorry LH you must have been lucky as I have never tasted a decent one yet.

It isn't that weird....

Is it a significant statement?

Yes, because the "real" artifact was silenced by T.B's government, probably illegitamately (which in itself qualifies it as a work of Art insofar as it can be argued that one of the functions of art is to make the viewer question his/her own value system).

Is it a work of any technical merit?

This is debatable - is the technical merit contained within the skill to create the piece, or the skill to concieve of it?
