Contemporary art venue reveals Scots talent’s latest work
Jupiter Artland, the contemporary sculpture estate in woodlands near Edinburgh airport, celebrated its second anniversary yesterday with the unveiling of five new works by Scottish and UK artists.
Among them, Jim Lambie, the Glasgow artist shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2005 and best known for his fluorescent floors fashioned from multicoloured tape.
His piece, A Forest, is named after a song by The Cure, and inspired by the way pop posters begin to peel from the corners. Jupiter Artland was established by businessman Robert Wilson and his wife Nicky in the woodlands around Bonnington House.
