Gold, silver, black and white vinyl tape
Most renown for his psychedelic floor installations, Jim Lambie’s boogie-inducing stripes are modish cover versions of Gene Davis and Sol LeWitt, cleverly remixed to suburban beats. His Zobop Gold, a sprawling hallucinatory field, pays homage to expanded painting in the tones of every record sleeve favoured on the play lists of smoky working men’s clubs. The effect is overwhelming, magnetic and dizzying, defying sober perspective, humorously envisioning pub karaoke night as the last frontier of Buren’s aesthetic intervention.
