I went to the opening of the Substation Contemporary Art Prize on 21 September, and revisited the exhibition last Saturday.

There were 50 finalists who had produced sculptures, installations, video works and paintings.

The winner was Ash Keating, who did a video about his mother’s death, A New Lifelong Landscape. I liked paintings by Dane Lovett (who I voted for in the People’s Choice Award) and Hamish Carr best, and an installation by ACAB Collective, a group of young artists who turned a basement room into a crazy fairy grotto.
