Simon Starling has been revisiting the history of forms and objects for two decades. Often taking up key moments in the history of modernism, Starling creates installations, films, photographs and sculptures which unearth often unacknowledged connections or migrations across space and time. Nine Feet Later at The Modern Institute, Glasgow, includes a series of site-specific daguerreotypes, titled Recursive Plates – an ongoing series that Starling began in 2014 in Casa Estudio Luis Barragán, Mexico. The Recursive Plates are made for and in particular spaces – in this case, The Modern Institute’s Aird’s Lane gallery space.
Until 6 February 2016.
