Winnie Herbstein (b. 1989, UK) lives in Glasgow, UK. Herbstein graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2014 (Environmental Art). She was on the committee at Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, and in 2018 studied at the City of Glasgow College (Women in Construction). She is a visiting lecturer at Glasgow School of Art and member of Slaghammers, feminist welding group.
Working across a range of video, text and sculpture, her work seeks to investigate the silences and gaps in our 'official' narratives. Recent projects have considered gendered space and materials, whilst thinking about ways in which we can live our lives differently.
