Jim Lambie

Found Text (Tallulah Bankhead), 2015

Ten-colour silkscreen print onto silver mirri board
Size: 52 x 72 cm
Edition of 50, signed and numbered

This new limited edition by Jim Lambie, has been created exclusively for Glasgow International. One of an ongoing series of text works by the artist Found Text (Tallulah Bankhead) depicts the last words of the 1920's American actress and libertine.

As with other text works by the artist, such as the earlier LSD 100 micrograms I.M, which features the last words of Aldous Huxley, Lambie sees the words as found objects, made by other people and re-presented. Printed in reverse onto a mirror surface as if the slogan were spoken, the brightly coloured text and reflective surface typify the sensory pleasure and pop sensibility found in Lambie’s work.
