Join us for an artist talk to mark the end of Steph Huang’s MTSA exhibition ‘There Is Nothing Old Under The Sun’ at Standpoint.

About

Huang will be joined by Seán Elder, a curator and writer from the Scottish Highlands and currently the Curatorial Fellow at Cubitt, London, where their programme 'Feeling Still in a World Which Runs' is unfolding.

Huang is the 21st winner of the MTSA, the most significant award for emerging UK artists working in the field of sculpture. In this new exhibition, Huang continues her investigation into mass production and commerce, the transcultural and historical dimensions of the food industry, and the implications of such markets on our natural environment. Using a variety of manual techniques, Huang transforms everyday spaces and objects, resulting in minimalist sculptures and poetically charged installations of quiet resonance.

Educated at Schools of Art in Birmingham, Glasgow, and Aberdeen, Elder recently completed a doctoral research project examining the roles and potentials of affect within curatorial writing practices. Previously they were Associate Curator at Grand Union, Birmingham, and has worked independently with a number of organisations and artists to develop writing, exhibitions, screenings, and events.

Elder has grown from, through, and with relationships with artists including; Gordon Douglas, Rami George, Benny Nemer, Kirsty Russell, Tako Taal, Rehana Zaman and many more, with organisations including; Jerwood Arts, London; Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee; Grand Union, Birmingham; BALTIC 39, Newcastle; The Stuart Croft Foundation; Collective Gallery, Edinburgh; Hospitalfield, Arbroath; BEK, Bergen; LUX Scotland.
