Nathaniel Cummings-Lambert’s Corral is a labyrinthine installation inspired by wooden animal pens found in rural landscapes of the western United States as well as the fence, gate, and stile networks that line public footpaths in the United Kingdom. The hybrid labyrinth can be interpreted as a metaphor for accessibility and land rights, but invokes a sense of play that cultivates exploration rather than entrapment.
Nathaniel Cummings-Lambert (b. Sylva, NC in 1987; lives and works in New York) received his BA from Eugene Lang College, The New School for Liberal Arts in 2011 and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2015. He works in film, installation, and sculpture. An interest in land rights, the contemporary legacy of colonialism, and federal barriers and borders guides and pervades his work.
Cummings-Lambert’s work has been exhibited at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Salt Lake City, UT (2018), Blue Roof Studios, Loa Angeles, CA (2017), and Poesi-O-Rama, Malmö, Sweden (2016). His films have been screened at the Anti-Matter Film Festival, Victoria, Canada (2011), Redhook Cine Soirée, Brooklyn (2011), and he was awarded Best Post-Production at the Dorothy H. Hirshon Film Festival, New York (2011).
