The Woolworths Choir of 1979 is the video work with which Elizabeth Price won the prestigious Turner Prize in 2012. She takes three seemingly unrelated topics – Gothic church architecture, the choir, and the infamous fire at a Woolworths department store in Manchester in 1979 – and combines these historical sources together to create a new story. The film consists of a rhythmic montage of various visual sources (archival images, documents, original visual material), through which subjects are logically connected in an associatively reflective way.
