This work is a free-standing sculpture made from chairs that have been halved, painted and assembled into a large wave-like form.

At various positions around the structure the artist has attached handbags that are covered with fragments of broken mirror. In all his work, Lambie combines an original vocabulary of materials and techniques with observant and playful references to culture and society. Lambie creates new formal arrangements of familiar objects such as chairs, doors or mattresses. During processes of transformation in his studio these objects lose their ‘everyday’ functional usefulness but gain boldness and originality that enables them to exist and be viewed as unique objects in their own right.
