Jim Lambie
Train in Vein

November 7 – December 19, 2015
Opening reception: Saturday, November 7, 6 – 8pm

For his upcoming solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery, Glasgow-based artist Jim Lambie will present a colorful new body of sculptures that will inhabit an immersive installation from floor to ceiling. In a cheeky reversal of The Clash’s song Train in Vain, Lambie titles his exhibition Train in Vein to describe the rush of energy these works channel to the viewer’s senses.

A musician before he became a visual artist, Lambie has a synesthetic approach to his art practice. Colors are harmonies and pattern and repetition form rhythms. The artist was originally in a band with members of what came to be Teenage Fanclub, and in 2012 established The Poetry Club, a “hub for art, music, performance, spoken word and billows of smoke” that continues to be a vital part of the Glasgow art and music scene today. Mounted high on the wall inside The Poetry Club is ‘The Flying Scotsman,’ a train engine that moonlights as a smoke machine, which will occupy the gallery as the center of the exhibition. The appropriation and repurposing of this object ties in with the other works that make up Train in Vein, with each element constructed from found objects to create sculptures that are steeped in the spirit of the UK punk explosion with garish tones, bold display, and references to both bands and songs from an array of movements.
