Seat Belt (Fes Freak), 2009

Jim Lambie’s work is loaded with references to popular culture, art history and music. Working with items immediately at hand, as well as those sourced in second-hand stores, Lambie resurrects record decks, speakers, clothing, accessories, doors and mirrors to make striking and colourful installations, sculptures and assemblages. Seat Belt is a chair constructed entirely out of belts cast in steel. The work is playful and suggestive, and slightly menacing.
