LONDON (AP).- An artist who used her own singing voice in an art installation won the prestigious Turner Prize award for contemporary art on Monday.

Susan Philipsz received the 25,000 pound ($39,000) prize at the Tate Britain in London for her recording of herself singing three versions of the 16th-century Scottish folk song, "Lowlands Away."

It was the first time a sound installation had been shortlisted for the prize since it was set up in 1984 to promote modern British art.

The installation was exhibited in an otherwise empty gallery.

"Drawing on the powerful, immersive properties of sound and the human voice, Philipsz is engaged with the notion of singing as a physical and sculptural experience," the organizers said in a statement.

The prize is open only to British artists under the age of 50. Prior winners include well-known British artists Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.

Philipsz was up against painter Dexter Dalwood, Angela de la Cruz and The Otolith Group filmmakers. They would each receive 5,000 pounds ($7,800).

The prize is named after esteemed British painter J.M.W. Turner.
