Simon Starling: MetamorphologySimon Starling: Metamorphology

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Foreword by Madeleine Grynsztejn. Text by Dieter Roelstraete, Mark Godfrey, Janine Mileaf, Simon Starling.

British conceptual artist Simon Starling (born 1967) interrogates the histories of art and science, as well as other subjects such as economic and environmental issues, through a wide variety of media including film, installation and photography. Published for his first survey exhibition at a major American museum, Simon Starling: Metamorphology highlights a fundamental principle of Starling’s practice: an almost alchemistic conception of the transformative potential of art, or of transformation as art. The Turner Prize–winning artist’s working method constitutes recycling, both literally and figuratively: repurposing existing materials for new, artistic aims; retelling existing stories to produce new historical insights; linking, looping and remaking. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in tandem with the Arts Club of Chicago, and features essays by MCA Chicago senior curator Dieter Roelstraete, Arts Club of Chicago executive director Janine Mileaf in collaboration with Simon Starling, and Tate Modern curator Mark Godfrey.

Simon Starling: Under LimeSimon Starling: Under Lime

Published by Walther König.
Text by Angela Rosenberg, Julian Heynen, Dominic Eichler.

In his provocative installation works, UK conceptualist Simon Starling tells stories about natural and cultural processes of transformation. "He displaces, inverts, reserves and remakes existing things with self-conscious, ironic amateurishness. He is a tinkerer with objects of design and bits of history, an alchemist of arcana and late modernism," according Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times. This volume presents three projects by Starling: in "Kakteenhaus," (2002), an Andalusian cactus is transplanted to Berlin's winter, where a converted automotive engine ensures its survival; "Plant Room" (2008) creates a mud-brick chamber for sensitive historical photographs; and for "Under Lime" (2009), Starling cut a lime branch from the nearby "Unter den Linden" boulevard and grafted it beneath the Kunsthalle's rafters.

Simon Starling: The Nanjing ParticlesSimon Starling: The Nanjing Particles

Published by MASS MoCA.
Text by Susan Cross, Anthony W. Lee.

2005 Turner Prize winner Simon Starling is known for his investigations into the hidden lives of objects and images, and his catalogues are an integral part of his production. The Nanjing Particles, published for an exhibition at MASS MoCA, is a unique object that takes as its departure a historical stereograph of Chinese laborers brought to Massachusetts in 1870 to break a strike. Starling literally mined the photographs for their history, extracting from their emulsion two silver particles. Enlarged one million times, the microscopic grains were translated into stainless steel sculptures fabricated by workers in Nanjing. Taking viewers through the installation and the work's fabrication process, the book reiterates the visual and conceptual play of the exhibition. The cover, which features die-cut peepholes, mimics the form of a structure in the exhibition. Readers can use the book itself as a low-tech stereoscope to view the photographs--printed on the inside covers--as a single three-dimensional image.

Simon Starling: CuttingsSimon Starling: Cuttings

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Philipp Kaiser. Essays by Daniel Kurjakovic and Reid Shier.

Simon Starling is part of a young generation of conceptual artists whose work is more concerned with narrative than their predecessors' has been. Pieces like Inverted Retrograde Theme, USA (House for a Songbird), which shrinks scale models of modular concrete homes into birdhouses on slim wood supports, investigate modernistic design objects, materials and concepts that exemplify the prevailing ideologies and production factors of specific regions, cultures, and generations. By breaking down his source material and transforming it, Starling writes a new chapter in its history while raising questions about complex cultural and aesthetic phenomena of our time. Cuttings is an unprecedented overview of his work, and is literally cut away itself, with pages trimmed into different lengths in different sections to delineate coverage of 2005 projects, including those for a first survey exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel; previous works listed from A to Z; and several texts, including two essays and an interview.
