Jim Lambie

(1964 -)
Jim Lambie studied Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art from 1990-1994. In 2005 he was nominated for the Turner Prize. He lives and works in Glasgow.


Lambie's work often utilises ordinary, everyday objects that we repeatedly interact with, which he modifies in colour, scale, or material. He is perhaps best-known for works in different coloured tapes applied to the floor, which define the shape of a room, beginning at the edges and culminating in the centre. In these works in tape and Lambie's sculptures alike, one is made aware of the environment in which the works are situated and how we interact with them.


Recent solo exhibitions include 'Zero Concerto', Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2015); 'Sun Rise Sun Ra Sun Set', Rat Hole Gallery, Tokyo (2015); and 'Jim Lambie', The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2014). His work can be found in private and public collections worldwide, including British Council Collection, London; Arts Council Collection, London; Scottish National Gallery of Art, Edinburgh; and Jumex Collection, Mexico City.
