What art have I seen? Jim Lambie

Posted in Exhibitions by chrisfremantle on July 3, 2014

Jim Lambie’s exhibition at the Fruitmarket, part of Generation, includes classic work Zobop (the floor) and Shaved Ice (the mirror ladders).  I think I recognised both Rainbow Rising and Deep Purple in Rock in Stakka (the albums gaffer taped together with the images taped out leaving only the background colours visible).  By chance I saw Zobop in Transmission in 1999.  It’s still a great piece of work, drawing attention to the smallest details in the space in which it’s installed.  It’s definitely sculpture, but it could be painting too.
