+ Q&A with Winnie Herbstein

Winnie Herbstein (b. 1989) lives and works in Glasgow.

Winnie Herbstein’s current research explores the gendering of labour and workspaces, particularly the building site, with a focus on how we can live differently by studying alternative living models present in feminist living spaces and sci-fi worlds. A conversation around power relations, specifically systemic power imbalances, is central to Winnie’s interactions with materials and making processes. The objects and films she produces often present a challenge to gender stereotypes and expectations around who is (and is not) allowed access to certain skills or spaces.

She has recently completed the Women in Construction course at City of Glasgow College and is a member of Slaghammers feminist welding collective. She was a committee member at Transmission Gallery from 2015-2017 and is a current nominee for the Margaret Tait Award.

Recent solo exhibitions include, Studwork, House for an Art Lover, Glasgow International (2018); Riprap, Atelier am Eck, Düsseldorf (2018); Before I could speak, X spoke, Outpost Gallery, Norwich (2017); Soft Shoulder, SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow (2016). Recent group exhibitions include, Social Event (curated by Love Unlimited), Glasgow International (2018); Citizen w/ Runa Islam, Seamus Harahan and CAMP – Hospitalfield, Arbroath (2017); NSK State Pavilion – 57th Venice Biennale (2017). She was nominated for the Margaret Tait Award 2019. In May 2019, she will present a solo exhibition at Jupiter Woods, London.
