TateShots: Simon Starling at Tate St Ives

English: From the Atrium of the Tate St Ives. ...

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 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.
