A BELFAST-trained artist is in the running to win the 30th Turner Prize.

Film-maker Duncan Campbell (41), a former University of Ulster student, is nominated for the prestigious art prize for his work, It For Others, which formed part of Scotland’s entries at the Venice Biennale last year.

The piece features his response to a 1953 film, Statues Also Die, and examines the commercialisation of African art.

Campbell's film also includes a look at the commodity market through the medium of dance, with a work choreographed by Michael Clark.

Born in Dublin, he graduated from the University of Ulster in Belfast in 1996 and then Glasgow School of Art.

The Glasgow-based film-maker will compete for the £25,000 Turner Prize with James Richards, Ciara Phillips and Tris Vonna-Michell.

The winner will be announced in December.

Last night, Professor Ian Montgomery Dean of Faculty of Art, Design and the Built Environment at the University of Ulster wished Campbell well.

“The Belfast School of Art is pleased that yet another of its graduates has been shortlisted for the prestigious Turner Prize,” Professor Montgomery said.

“Duncan Campbell is in good company, with our many alumni nominees including Professor Willie Doherty (nominated twice), Professor Declan McGonagle, Cathy Wilkes, Phil Collins, Christine Borland, and awardee Susan Philips.

“We would like to take this opportunity to wish Duncan Campbell well for the exhibition and every success for the future. We will all be supporting Duncan for the 2014 award.”
