Graham Lambkin (UK)
Graham Lambkin first came to prominence in the early ‘90s through his experimental music group The Shadow Ring. As a sound organizer, rather than music maker, Lambkin transforms quotidian materials into expressive sound art using tape manipulation techniques, chance operations, and the thick ambience of domestic field recordings. His Kye imprint, founded in 2001, was an instrumental platform for the dissemination of work by an intergenerational cast of artists using sound, including Henning Christiansen, Anton Heyboer, Moniek Darge, and Gabi Losoncy. Lambkin began showing his visual art in 2014 with “Came To Call Mine,” an exhibition curated by Lawrence Kumpf and Justin Luke at Audio Visual Arts, New York, in conjunction with the publication of Lambkin’s children’s book (for adults) of the same name, and he has since exhibited his work at 356 Mission, Los Angeles; Künstlerhaus, Stuttgart, Germany; PiK, Cologne, Germany; and Blank Forms, New York.
