A pocket, non illustrated mid-career catalogue raisonné of a practice now spanning over two decades.
Every work ever realized by Starling is listed in alphabetical order and referenced in this compact guide, which also provides a bibliography and connections to other related projects. Halfway through the text flow, three photo inserts and texts by the artist and Maja McLaughlin document the exhibition projects El Eco and Bowl, Plates realized in Mexico City, at the Museo Experimental El Eco and the Luis Barragán House and Studio, in 2015.
Based on intensive research and (self-)experimentation, the works of Turner Prize winner Simon Starling (born 1967 in in Epsom, Surrey, lives and works in Copenhagen and berlin) works take the form of multipart installations that incorporate technological trappings, films, photography, objects, performance, and publications. With a sharp interest in and a decisive concern for the historical and especially the history of science and technology, Starling implicates history's untimely workings in the present.
