Winnie Herbstein


Residency Period March 2017 – March 2018

Working across a range of media including video, text, performance, sculpture and installation, Winnie Herbstein seeks to investigate the silences and gaps in our ‘official’ narratives working with personal anecdote, memoirs and oral histories as a way to access alternative forms. During her residency Herbstein developed new work including that of Studwork which was presented at House for an Art Lover during Glasgow International 2018.
