Caroline Lambard co-curator Caroline is an installation artist and co-founded ideas-matter-sphere in 2011 with artist Elizabeth Murton. Caroline's work explores the perception of three-dimensional form, and ideas-matter-sphere is a natural development of the spontaneous, cross-disciplinary conversations that develops alongside her artwork. The salons form both an ongoing part of her own exploration of ideas through dialogue and practice, as well as a means to facilitate that exploration for other practitioners and enquiring minds. Exhibited A Matter of Substance July 2013.
