Simon Starling - Camden Art Centre

Simon Starling’s work focuses on ideas of process and change.

His interest in the transformation of functional objects questions concepts of originality and authorship in contemporary culture, confusing notions of cultural and commercial value. His work frequently involves turning originals into fakes and ready-mades into re-mades. The exhibition consisted of two new works: Rescued Rhodedendron, video documentation of a journey to return a number of rhododendron plants taken from a piece of heathland in Scotland (where they are considered weeds), to their place of origin in Spain, and a project that involves the construction of a hen house based on a museum in Bremen dedicated to modernist designer Wilhelm Wagenfeld.
