For the second consecutive year, a former Falmouth student is among the nominees for the Turner Prize.

Tris Vonna-Michell completed his foundation in art and design at Falmouth College of Arts in 2002, before continuing his studies at Glasgow School of Art and the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main.

He is nominated for his solo exhibition, Postscript II (Berlin) at Jan Mot, Brussels. His fast paced spoken word live performances and recordings are accompanied by installations.

Tris is the third former Falmouth University student to be shortlisted for the Turner Prize - Lynette Yiadom-Boakye was shortlisted in 2013 and Tacita Dean in 1998. The 2014 winner of the £25,000 prize will be announced on December 1.
