Simon Starling is a British conceptual artist. The Tate awarded him the prestigious Turner Prize in 2005 for Shedboatshed, a work that involved taking a wooden shed, turning it into a boat, sailing it down the Rhine, and turning it back into a shed. Starling was born in 1967 in Epsom, England, and currently lives and works in Copenhagen.
He teaches fine arts at the Städelschule in Frankfurt, Germany.
