Liam Gillick has been making a name for himself with sculptures, spatial installations, films, scripts and stage plays since the early 1990s. While the artist engages in a dialogue with the 20th-century abstract avant-garde in formal terms, his works always relate to historical or up-to-date political themes in terms of their content. Gillick’s architectural floor object Provisional Bar Floor/Ceiling, 2004, made of pallets with different color strips, is a continuation of his spatial objects which he calls ‘screens’. These mark places within defined spaces, which the onlooker can use as a kind of visual discussion platform. Gillick plays with the demarcations between abstract pictorial nature and concrete three-dimensionality which always broaches the human being’s scope of language, thought and action.
