This exhibition is the result of an ongoing dialogue and provides an opportunity to witness the overlaps and resonances within their work.
Gillick has created two new works for the exhibition, “Discussion Corral” and “Liquid Renovation”, which develop the rhetoric behind his Think Tanks, Platforms and Screens, gridded structures made from brightly coloured Plexiglas and aluminium. Operating somewhere between architecture, design and sculpture, these works ask us to negotiate space, thereby creating the potential for new or unexpected social encounters.
Gillick’s new works are more open structures than his recent works, and abandon the use of multi-coloured Plexiglas. Instead they favour the painting of the gridded aluminium frame, leaving a more permeable structure, which can also be entered from one side.
