This unusual giant butt is one of the works of the four artists nominated for the Tate Turner Prize this year.
The large sculpture shows a huge unclothed, 30 foot tall derriere that protrudes from a huge brick wall, with its owners palms spreading the cheeks apart.
From today, September 27, 2016, the Tate Britain will exhibit the works of the four shortlisted artists for 2016's Turner Prize.
The coveted and highly contended for award is presented annually to a British visual artist that is below 50 years.
The huge butt is part of a sculpture that is named 'Project for a Door' by Anthea Hamilton. The artwork is inspired by an Italian artist and designer, Gaetano Pesce. Pesce's 1972 proposal for a doorway in a Manhattan apartment building was never actualized.
This year’s Turner Prize show is different and notable because most of the artists featured are women. The featured artists are Michael Dean, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten and Josephine Pryde.
