The Turner Prize exhibition opens today at Tate Britain and, as ever, it’s guaranteed to be controversial.

Roger Hiorns’ work includes a heap of dust from an atomised passenger jet engine, and sculptures made from cows’ brains.

Enrico David’s exhibits include two papier-mâché egg men, while Lucy Skaer’s installation features the huge skull of a sperm whale.

Richard Wright’s work is the most traditional: an intricate gold-leaf painting on a white wall in an otherwise empty room.

Is it art? The exhibition’s on until 3 January, so head down to Tate Britain and decide for yourself!
