About the artwork

Elizabeth Price works predominately in moving image installation, animating collections of found and created imagery which are redrawn as apocalyptic narratives. Combining text, image, and music, her incisive editing processes create unexpected links between disparate histories and archives.  

Price's films are voiced by anonymous 'choruses', who become the central protagonists of key works such as the Turner Prize-winning 'THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979' (2012): her assembly sings '“WE KNOW. WE ARE CHORUS”, as the words simultaneously flash across the screen. This plural 'WE' is the basis for Price's new edition, which also references her series of hard-edged text and wall paintings.
