Liam Gillick – Relieved Wall Structure, 2007
Sculpture | Painted aluminium
The work of Liam Gillick (Aylesbury, UK, 1964) is linked to post- conceptual practices and the legacy of the minimal. He employs a wide variety of media (sculpture, writing, architecture and graphic design, film and music), as well as taking on critical and curatorial projects. Gillick analyses the aesthetics of social systems and the forms of social organization. He focuses on modes of production rather than those of consumption. His sculptures do not explore abstraction so much as the desire to change spaces and in so doing change social interaction.
