PHILIPSZ WINS TURNER PRIZE

GLASGOW-BORN Susan Philipsz became the first sound artist to win Britain’s Turner Prize yesterday, justifying her position as bookmakers’ favourite for the annual award worth £25,000 to the winner. Victory for the 45-year-old, whose work centres around recordings of her voice singing folk songs in public spaces, is likely to rile traditionalists who have criticised the prize for being out of touch with popular tastes.
