MATT LAMBERT
PICKAXE

3D - 23D OF DECEMBER, 2016
OPENING SATURDAY 3D OF DECEMBER 14-17


Lambert is presenting a new grouping of work titled "pickaxe". In this new work Lambert deals with the interaction of the physical wearer and the potential that the viewer also becomes the wearer through the use of reflection of light and image. The energised space that exists with this interaction becomes the space of interest and of "the work". Lambert is currently an invited artist in residence at IASPIS (The Swedish Arts Grants Committee´s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists) in Stockholm. This exhibition is Lamberts second solo show at Platina.

Matt Lambert was born in Detroit, Michigan U.S.A. As a child he spent half the year in the urban city of Detroit and half in a protected forest in Ontario, Canada. He currently resides and maintains a studio practice in Detroit. Lambert holds a Masters from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Metalsmithing (2014) and has apprenticed as a leathersmith for 8 years. As well as studying Art and Design Lambert holds academic degrees and notations in Psychology, Art History and American Studies from Wayne State University in Detroit (2012). Lambert's work often looks at the blurring of systems and hegemonic scales/binaries, often combining technological and hand process to create hybrid/chimerical forms that directly engage or address the body.
