Jim Lambie
Doors (Humanizer), 2003

Since the 1960s Pop artists are increasingly interested in mass production, consumption, advertisement and the social reality of the world of commodities and means of communication. Jim Lambie’s art draws on these predecessors by collecting the aesthetic remnants of his surrounding and combining them with the here and now of everyday life. As an inhabitant of big cities, stroller, consumer and former musician he adds bygone elements to what he finds and forms them into fragile signatures of the present. The series of the Doors – meanwhile grown to comprise around 40 variations – alienates the every-day object “door” to a minimalist art piece. With its different folds and bends, the edges covered with a mirror trim, the sculpture states a power of confirmation and ranges despite its deformation between functionality and sculptural purposelessness.
