Born 1992, Vancouver
Holder of a BA diploma in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London (2014) and an MA diploma in Fine Art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts, Reykjavik. Lam’s work was presented in solo exhibitions at RÝMD in Breiðholt and at Galleri Fisk in Bergen (both in 2017). Since 2014, her performances have featured at a range of festivals and group presentations in Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and the UK.
The artist’s practice revolves around the themes of wonder, magic, childhood and positive psychology. Her artistic creed: “I listen to my materials and let them say what they have to say” derives from Carl Roger’s counselling method, in which the therapist only repeats what the patient says, thus becoming their mirror.
