Who’s going to win the Turner Prize?

Angela de la Cruz, 'Clutter', 2003

The winner of the 2010 Turner Prize will be announced this time next week. Sound artist Susan Philipz is the bookies clear favourite, with Dexter Dalwood and Angela de la Cruz jostling for second place.   Guardian art critic Adrian Searle is backing Philipz too (you can watch his video verdict online) but Leg of Lamb is rooting for de la Cruz.  Her busted-up paintings literally spill from their frames, while others lie crumpled on the floor in anticlimactic heaps.  The artist’s anthropomorphised semi-sculptures poke fun at the heroics of painting.
