Simon Starling: Recent History
5 February – 2 May 2011
This contemporary artist examines the interplay between culture and nature, using works produced in the last five years.
The exhibition will also include The Long Ton 2009, a sculpture featuring two rough-cut white lumps of marble suspended in space. The larger of the two stones, an import from China weighing one ton, is counterbalanced by approximately 250 kg of Italian marble thanks to a 4:1 ratio pulley system that allows the two stones to sit in perfect equilibrium.
