Charlotte Prodger wins with powerful iPhone-shot film

Glasgow-based artist Charlotte Prodger has won the prestigious Turner Prize for a pair of autobiographical films — one of which was shot entirely on an iPhone.

The 44-year-old, whose work explores landscape, language and queer identity, was named winner of the £25,000 ($32,000) award at a ceremony in London Tuesday evening.

One of Prodger’s two winning films, the highly personal “Bridgit,” addresses the artist’s experience of coming out as gay in rural Scotland. The 33-minute-long artwork was created over the course of a year, and was filmed only using her iPhone.
