Graham Lambkin and artist Ed Atkins will discuss how matter, intimacy, accident and place figure in the making and reception of Lambkin’s work.
Graham Lambkin is a multidisciplinary artist based in Upstate New York who first came to prominence in the early 90s through the formation of his music group The Shadow Ring. Following the dissolution of The Shadow Ring Lambkin embarked on a series of striking and highly original solo releases, including Salmon Run (2007) and Amateur Doubles (2012), a critically acclaimed trilogy with experimental tape musician Jason Lescalleet: The Breadwinner (2007), Air Supply (2010) and Photographs (2013), and Making A (2013), a collaboration with renowned table-top guitarist and founding member of the AMM group, Keith Rowe. His latest release, Schwarze Riesenfalter, sees Lambkin paired with Wandelweiser composer Michael Pisaro in a musical reimagining for the texts of Georg Trakl.
Ed Atkins lives and works in Berlin. Solo presentations include Recent Ouija at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2015); Ed Atkins at Serpentine Gallery, London; and Bastards at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (both 2014). Last year, group projects included the 14th Istanbul Biennial; The New Museum Triennial, NYC; Teen Paranormal Romance at Renaissance Institute, Chicago; and a new project, Performance Capture, as part of the Manchester International Festival. This summer he began a year long artist-in-residency scholarship with the DAAD in Berlin. Forthcoming projects include the SMK Copenhagen; Castello di Rivoli, Torino; The Kitchen, NYC; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Torino; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, NYC; DHC Art, Montreal. 2016 will also see the publication of his collected writings.
