Kenneth Lambert is a contemporary artist born in Cape Town, South Africa, who migrated to Australia at the age of 10 to the western suburbs of Sydney.
With a background in museums, design and filmmaking his conceptually driven practice lies at the intersection between psychology, philosophy and technology. He often translates raw data and scientific methods to deliver works that span across digital, video, and installation.
Since first exhibiting in 2016, Kenneth’s work has been recognised internationally by winning the 2019 Grand Prix Prize – See Me competition for his work “Data Blue”, which explores anonymity in the digital age. Most recently he has been a finalist in the 2019 Incinerator Art Prize; Art for Social change, for his particle and installation based works on climate change. In early 2019 he completed his first international residency in Finland which sparked the recurring theme of acceleration in his work.
In the last 12 months Kenneth has been a finalist in the 2018 Alice Prize and 2018 Churchie Prize, 2018 Lismore Portrait Prize, 2018 Hidden Sculpture Prize for which he achieved a Highly Commended as well as the 2018 Armory Prize, Artist in residency. He has exhibited in both solo and group shows with Coma gallery, Galerie Pompom, Articulate Project Space and Stacks Projects. Most recently he has been invited to showcase his work, “Data Blue” at the 2019 Scope in Miami and is currently planning his first international solo show in New York for mid 2020.
