Mark Godfrey is curator at Tate Modern. He speaks on Simon Starling's Infestation Piece (Musselled Moore), part of his survey exhibition Cuttings (Supplement), on view at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto, Canada from 1 March - 11 May 2008.
Godfrey is the author of Abstraction and the Holocaust (Yale University Press, 2007) and a frequent contributor to Artforum, OCTOBER and frieze. Recent publications include essays on Tacita Dean, Matthew Buckingham, Gerard Byrne, and Omer Fast. He curated the exhibition Matthew Buckingham: Play the Story at Camden Arts Centre in London in 2007, is working on an exhibition of work by Roni Horn for Tate Modern and a book on Alighiero E Boetti. In this talk on Simon Starling's regenerated sculpture, Godfrey considers Starling's practice as a compelling response both to recent sculptural history and to contemporary object and material relations.
