Liam Gillick, b.1964

Literally Based on H.Z.2006

Liam Gillick uses architectural materials and manufacturing production techniques in his artworks. Here, a combination of maquettes, prototypes and signage sit on functional trestles. The table design is based on the aesthetics of Heimo Zoebernig (H.Z.); an Austrian artist known for his engagement with questions of display. Each time the work is displayed, the arrangement and positioning of the tables and objects is decided by the curator responding to the context and space; all elements must be displayed together.
