Statement

Sam Taylor-Wood is an English conceptual artist. Her work includes photography and cinema. Taylor-Wood's breakthrough came in 1994 with the work Killing Time in which four people mimed an opera score. From that point multi-screen video works became the main focus of Taylor-Wood's work. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997 and won the Illy Café Prize for Most Promising Young Artist at the 47th Venice Biennale.

In August 2008 Taylor-Wood was chosen to direct Nowhere Boy, a biopic about legendary Beatles singer, John Lennon. In 2009, Sam Taylor-Wood collaborating with Sky Arts chose Vesti la Giubba from Pagliacci to interpret.
