Liam Gillick (born 1964 in Aylesbury, UK; lives and works in New York) creates situated works that reference and reflect the social, ethical, political, and ideological conditions and dilemmas that circumscribe art, artist and audience, and - by analogy - society as a whole. His perhaps most recognised work are minimalist sculptures made from colored Plexiglas and aluminum, which can be found in several public spaces around the world. Reminiscent of Judds%C3%82´s "primary structures", these constructions play form against function and hinge on a complex relation to sculpture, furniture, and architecture. Gillick%C3%82´s first set of furniture pieces for Schellmann Art - a long narrow table bench and a shelf system - are both visually and structurally evocative of his sculptures.
