Technicolor Tape Installations Turn Ordinary Hallways And Staircases Into ‘Dreamscapes’

Glasgow based Jim Lambie has mastered the art of tape, fashioning large-scale installations out of the sticky stuff that he manages to imbue with the power to transform the dynamics of an entire space. Lambie’s creations are heavily influenced by the architecture of the gallery space it inhabits, tracing the floor with brightly colored vinyl tape to create pulsating illusions that disorient the viewer.

Each of the installations is site-specific and labor-intensive, with most taking weeks to complete. Through the use of contrasting colors, angles and lines, Lambie’s installations emphasize the movement created within the space, transforming the quiet gallery into an energetic sensory overload, pulling you into some kind of “dreamscape.”
