The Fruitmarket Gallery presents a solo exhibition of the work of Jim Lambie, one of Scotland’s most internationally significant artists. Known for visually compelling, generous and beguiling work which attracts both popular and critical acclaim, Lambie came to prominence with Zobop (1999), a floor-based sculptural intervention that consists of continuous lines of multi-coloured vinyl tape laid in concentric circuits of a room from its outside edges to its centre. First shown in Transmission in Glasgow in 1999, it is now in several major international collections.

Lambie’s work makes its magic from relatively humble materials – tinfoil and coat hangers, jackets, mirrors, records, turntables, potato sacks, plastic bags and household paint. Bringing together early sculptures like The Kid with the Replaceable Head (1996), Ultra-Low (1998/2007), Stakka (1999), Roadie (1999), and Zobop (1999), with more recent work including a spectacular new version of Shaved Ice (2012/14) that fills the ground floor of the Gallery with a forest of floor to ceiling, brightly coloured mirrored ladders, this exhibition offers the opportunity to trace the development of Lambie’s exuberantly intelligent and visually arresting sculptural language.

Bringing together two decades of sculpture and installation, the exhibition is part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2014 and GENERATION, a Scotland-wide celebration of the past 25 years of work by some of Scotland’s most prominent artists, timed to coincide with the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow.
