Melanie Lambert

My works explore the topic of identity and externalisation of autobiographical experiences related to cycles of life, loss and desire. I’m Fine, addresses the emotional turmoil triggered by my father’s passing and the mantra of words ‘I’m Fine’ being used repeatedly as consolation. Through this work, I evoke layers of accumulated emotions and loss. The form is made by repeated action of entangling electrical cables, which reference my father’s career as an electrician. The aim of the work is to capture the ongoing intense feelings and experiences of anxiety, pain and suffering following the loss of a loved one.
