This event has ended.

“The everyday and universal objects are often overlooked and ignored. I am bringing these elements into sharp focus. Placing them in a more central role. It’s surprising how universal some objects are. A ladder for instance, a chair, a table. I always love to visit the flea markets and junk shops of a city, this is where I find the real language of the city. The ‘stuff’ people have lived with or live with on a day-to-day basis.”
-Jim Lambie

Skin Shape marks Jim Lambie’s eighth solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery. The artist takes humble materials and transforms them into bright and joyful work; this exhibition will take ladders, sunglass lenses, doors, and monitors, and render them into surprising work that vibrate and pulse with the musical energy Lambie imbues in everything he makes.
