Of all the art experiences we had last year, Seizure took the biscuit. Never before had we had to don wellies before entering the art space and never had a council flat in Elephant been so transformed - literally turned into a copper sulphate crystal cave. Hoorah, then, that it's shortlisted for the Turner Prize to inject a dose of magical immersive installation magic into what's been a fairly turgid few Turner years. If only it were compulsory for Roger Hiorns to crystallize a gallery of the Tate for the annual prize exhibition. Regrettably, such sorcery is reserved for derelict dwellings. The nature of his work for the show is still under discussion.
