LONDON (AP) - Theatrical shows by a performance artist and drawings that make use of human excrement have gone on show at London’s Tate Britain as part of the Turner Prize exhibition.

The exhibition showcases the works of the four artists nominated for Britain’s most influential and most-mocked art prize, which each year awards 25,000 pounds ($40,000) to a British artist under 50.

The contenders include Spartacus Chetwynd, whose election-themed interactive piece, “Odd Man Out,” asks participants to cast votes. If their choice was judged lacking, they were cast down an inflatable slide to a space littered with charred limbs.

Chetwynd is up against film and video artists Luke Fowler and Elizabeth Price, and Paul Noble, who produces detailed drawings of a dystopian imaginary city populated by human excrement.
