The other artists nominated are painter Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, French installation artist Laure Prouvost and British-German performance artist Tino Sehgal.
Sehgal has been shortlisted for his These Associations project, which was staged last year in London’s Tate Modern Gallery. The ‘live installation’ piece saw volunteers interact with members of the public as they wandered the gallery’s Turbine Hall space.
