The Doors (LA Woman) 2005

Jim Lambie (b.1964)

Government Art Collection

Versatile and enterprising artist, as in his solo show Zobop, at The Showroom, 1999, in which, using a selection of lo-fi materials, Lambie created a psychedelic vinyl floor shaped by gallery features. The audience crossed it to view sculptures made from such materials as glue sticks, balloons, tape, cigarettes and socks. Lambie was born and lived in Glasgow, where he gained a fine art honours degree from the School of Art, 1990–4. Other exhibitions included Mary Redmond & Jim Lambie, Assembly Gallery, Glasgow, 1995; Sick Building, Globe Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark, 1996; and Two Up, Property Gallery, Glasgow, 1998. In that year Lambie had a residency at Triangle, Marseilles, France, with a show there at La Friche. He won a Paul Hamlyn Visual Arts Award, 2000.
