“Simon Starling is best known for chopping up a shed, turning it into a boat, sailing it down the Rhine, and then reassembling it as a shed, a work which helped him to win the Turner Prize in 2005. For his first major exhibition in the UK since, he has built an art gallery within an art gallery — cramming a full-scale replica of the Pier Art Centre gallery in Orkney inside Tate St Ives. We went to Cornwall to talk to him about the show, which draws together works made in the last five years.” – Tate.

Simon Starling: Recent History is on view through May 2, 2011.
