Winner of the 2005 Turner Prize, Simon Starling is one of Scotland’s most internationally acclaimed artists. His works often consist of ‘journeys’ that reveal hidden relationships and histories in the process of transforming one object or substance into another. In 2004 he accepted the first Cove Park Commission and developed Autoxylopyrocycloboros: a major new project launched in summer 2006 that focused on the history and geography of the Clyde Estuary. For Autoxylopyrocycloboros Starling sailed a small, customised steamboat on Loch Long, feeding the wooden boat piece by piece into the on board wood burner, until it finally sank. The project formed the basis of his solo exhibition at Kunstverein Heidelberg in November 2006, and his work for the Cove Park Portfolio. Using an image documenting the sailing, he has converted each archival giclée print into a unique work by applying a burning process to them.

About Cove Park

Cove Park is an international artists’ residency centre located on an outstanding 50-acre rural site overlooking Loch Long on Scotland's west coast. The residency programme supports national and international artists working in all art forms and at every career stage. Artists are given the time, space, freedom and financial support required for research and the development of new work. Cove Park's visual arts programme also commissions new work for presentation on site or for exhibitions with partner venues; the first Cove Park Portfolio (2007) includes limited edition art works and prints from seven leading artists connected to Cove Park and the west coast. 

Scotland + Venice 2019 - the Scottish presentation at this year's Venice Biennale - is commissioned and curated by Linsey Young with Cove Park and the commissioned artist, Charlotte Prodger, will present a major new solo exhibition in Venice in 2019. Cove Park celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2020.
