image for Surprising Winner Claims Turner Prize
Turner prize winner. Box just out of shot.

A turd in a box has won this years Turner Prize, in a totally unsurprising turn of events.

The turd was shat in to a shoe box by English born artist Stanislav Moyovich Chapman, 37.

The artist told us from his home in Poland "I am so happy I won this grand accolade! I wanted to give something back to the art world, and couldn't think of anything more fitting!"

We asked if Chapman could explain exactly what the box of shit represented, he told us "it is a wary look to the future, a hexagonal, misty-eyed nod to the things that were, are and will be. A fantastical, enigmatic dream like experience, ready to pull you in and direct your senses to see clearer, more defined, the things we want to be in this world we create."

"It's shit, a small box of shit!" he finished.

Chapman faced strong competition this year from some heavy weight artists. Sonya Bertram-Bertram, the Stafford based installation artist, was a popular bet with her piece 'A Small Piece Of Dust On A Shelf'. And Latvia based artist Chesney, wowed judges with 'Picture Of The Meaning Of Life, At Night', a plain black canvas, evoking feelings of boredom and despair.

A passing cat meowing was also a last minute entry.

The Turner Prize is set to award even more pathetic pieces of useless tat, in the coming years.
