Liverpool Art Prize 2013



About the shortlisted artists:
Julieann O’Malley is an interdisciplinary artist based in Liverpool. Her practice is fundamentally live durational performance installations, video work, sound and photography.
Kevin Hunt is a sculptor based at Liverpool’s The Royal Standard concurrently working on a number of curatorial projects alongside his practice as an artist. He constructs sculpture utilising the found and redundant, reconfiguring these things to expose an inherent beauty, playfully tampering with the poetics of found form.
Laurence Payot infiltrates our everyday to create short-circuits and challenge our pre-conceived perceptions. From interventions and sculptures in the public realm, to larger collective performances, she generously invites the viewers to become active participants, blurring the line between the work and its audience. Laurence has been based at The Royal Standard for the last 8 years, and is originally from Metz, France.
Tabitha Moses lives in Liverpool and is based at Bridewell Studios. Her work concerns the tangible expression of human experience. Her subjects include murder, bodies, skin and Blackpool.
