Elizabeth Price – The Woolworths Choir of 1979 (2012)

Elizabeth Price (b.1966) won the 2012 Turner Prize for this multi-layered video work.

The Woolworths Choir of 1979 2012 is a three-part video that weaves together distinct bodies of material: photographs of church architecture, internet clips of pop performances and news footage of a deadly fire in a Woolworths furniture store in 1979.

Price treats history as something animated and malleable, as dissonant elements are clashed together to convey the experienced trauma as much as the facts of the event.
