Scottish visual artist Jim Lambie has filled the Anton Kern Gallery in Chelsea with colorful psychedelic found and industrial objects for his latest exhibit, “Spiritualized,” which runs through December 17. For the synesthetic show, Lambie has cut holes in the wall, put zippers on canvases, draped a giant belt over chairs, rolled up T-shirts into tiny glass jars, and constructed a huge mirror attached with folded sheets of metal. A former musician, he also pays tribute to Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones in dizzying ways.
