Helen Marten is having a year to remember. She was included in last year’s Venice Biennale. Then, a few months ago, she won the Hepworth Prize for sculpture. Now she has scooped the Turner. “Her sculptures seem to recreate the swirling confusion and messy abundance of contemporary life” observes the writer. A short video of Marten talking about her work is here and images here.
