Combining historical research, scientific enquiry and a deep engagement with the materials of his art, Starling creates enigmatic objects with remarkable stories behind them. At the forefront of contemporary art, Starling’s work also builds on the foundations of Land art and Conceptual art, harnessing their fascination with natural and technological systems. The subject of solo exhibitions at numerous museums around the world, such as the Hiroshima City Museum of Art, Kunstmuseum Basel and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Starling’s work is also regularly featured in prominent biennials, which so far have included Venice, Moscow and São Paulo.
