Liam Gillick

Born in the mid-60s and a graduate of London’s Goldsmiths College among the legendary classes of the late 1980s: Liam Gillick holds the perfect YBA pedigree. Rather than rising to prominence as part of Charles Saatchi’s 1997 "Sensation" exhibition, however, Gillick’s uncompromising conceptualism found a home in Nicolas Bourriaud’s 1996 exhibition "Traffic"—and a movement with the Relational Art the exhibition defined.

Working across an amazingly diverse array of media—from film to installation, printed works to musical composition—Gillick deconstructs the dysfunctional legacy of architecture and abstraction within the framework of modern neoliberalism. Liam Gillick’s works are frequently as bright and bold as they are intellectually intriguing, a powerful combination that earned him a Turner Prize nomination in 2002, a short-listing for the Vincent Award of the Stedelijk Museum in 2008, the German Pavilion at the 2009 Venice Biennale, as well as inclusion in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art.

Skeuomorphic Vent Type A, 2017

Making direct reference to skeuomorphism, the design concept that defined a generation’s transition from the analog to the digital world, Liam Gillick’s Skeuomorphic Vent Type A is a computer-generated depiction of an original, wall-mounted object. As such, it is a work that not only links directly to the artist’s 2016 book Industry and Intelligence: Contemporary Art Since 1820, but one that also expands his fascinating dialogue on the development of contemporary art in relation to technology.

An exclusive collaboration between the artist and Amazing Editions, Skeuomorphic Vent Type A is a limited-edition run of 45 archival inkjet prints on Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper. The bold orange hue that dominates this print will be familiar to those who have followed Liam Gillick’s work, as will the stunning complexity with which the work tackles the organizational aesthetics that have long been at the center of this artist’s thought-provoking practice—a perfect combination of intellectual and aesthetic signatures and a wonderful addition for collectors of contemporary Conceptual Art.
