Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents first Australian solo exhibition by Glaswegian artist Jim Lambie

Jim Lambie Metal Box (Tea Tree Orchid) 2015

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents Zero Concerto by Jim Lambie, in what is to be his first ever Australian solo exhibition. Presented free to the public from 13 August to 26 September, the installation invites audiences into a frenzy of multi-coloured potato sacks, bicycle wheels and a psychedelic palette of vinyl tape. Working with the existing architecture of the room, Lambie installed continuous lines of tape to the floor, adhering to his trademark style collectively titled 'Zobop'.

Raised in the 1970s, Lambie’s work is influenced by his passion for music and his installations often comment on fantasy, glamour and notably, popular culture. His work was most recently shown in Australia in 2014 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, as part of the 19th Biennale of Sydney, You Imagine What You Desire.
