Liam Gillick

°1974, United Kingdom

Liam Gillick examines the way in which power structures characterize the surroundings. He developed a transparent cube structure consisting of steel bars. The result hovers between sculpture, installation and architecture. The bars jointly form a kiosk structure, related to a number of ideas inherent to the current political, social and economic systems. These ideas are literally represented in the work. A space is created where the visitor can watch elements of the system, which – often invisible – control life. Gillick herewith criticizes the way in which the socio-economic reality is created and manipulated.
