Huge naked figure and blank gallery where people can chat about the economy… it’s Turner Prize time again

The bookmaker’s favourite to win is Glasgow-based artist David Shrigley whose piece Life Model features a larger than life naked male robot. Show-goers are encouraged to take part by drawing the model and their efforts are displayed around the gallery.

Among the best known artists in the running for the £25,000 prize money is Berlin-based Tino Sehgal, 37, whose work This Is Exchange consists of live ‘encounters’ between interpreters dressed in black T-shirts and the audience. There are no actual objects or displays on show.
