'Lemon Sherbet' finished in 69th position

The Turner Prize 2018 has gone to Charlotte Prodger, a 44-year-old Scottish lesbian who filmed herself 'coming out' on her iPhone, but the second and third-placed entries were also videos recorded on phones.

Second place went to the Hull-born social commentator, Moys Kenwood, whose video installation 'Coming Out' - himself taking a dump - was thought by many to be the conceptually-superior idea, but it was pipped at the post by Prodger's 'Bridgit'.

One art 'expert' said:

"I really liked this piece. It was full of warmth, vitality, feeling, yearning, straining to achieve a goal, to symbolically release pressure on our inner selves, to cleanse our body, spirit and mind of all impurities contained within, and to banish the hidden demons from our souls. I love art, but, even more, I love talking about it."

Third place went to another Hull artist, Myke Woodson, who filmed himself 'cranking one off' in his bathroom, in a work entitled 'Coming Up'.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
