Simon Starling: "Regarding Time"
With a particular focus on his activities as an exhibition maker, this richly illustrated talk will attempt to investigate the ways in which Simon Starling’s materially diverse art practice pushes and pulls at our understanding of time. From futuristic Zig-Zag chairs made of 45,000-year-old wood to the phantasmagorical effects of masquerades, from defunct craftsmanship to cutting-edge image production, from still photography to motion-control technology, this anachronic journey through the artist’s career will confront a uniform and absolute notion of time with possible divergent, convergent and parallel alternatives.

Simon Starling was born in Epsom, England, in 1967. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art, and was professor of fine arts at the Städelschule in Frankfurt from 2003 to 2013. His practice spans a wide variety of media, including film, installation and photography. Starling won the Turner Prize in 2005 and was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Prize in 2004. He represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2003 and has had solo exhibitions at Frac Ile-de-France, Le Plateau n Paris (2019), Musée regional d’art contemporain in Sérignan (2017), Japan Society in New York (2016), Museo Experimental El Eco in Mexico City (2015), Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (2014), Monash University Museum of Art in Melbourne (2013), Staatsgalerie Stuttgart in Germany (2013), Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan (2011) and Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams (2008). Starling lives in Copenhagen.
