Liam Gillick’s exhibition “Three Perspectives and a Short Scenario* Work 1988 – 2008 Mirrored Image: A ‘Volvo’ bar” at Kunstverein München is the third act of the large mid-career retrospective, that the four institutions Witte de With, Kunsthalle Zürich, Kunstverein München and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago conceived.
Instead of simply exhibiting previous works Kunstverein München is transformed into an active place of production. Working with a group of young Munich actors within a structure designed by the artist, Liam Gillick produces and directs a play titled “Mirrored Image: A ‘Volvo’ bar”. A series of performances will take place during and within the exhibition.
In this video by Gürsoy Dogtas, Liam Gillick talks about his retrospective and the exhibition at Kunstverein München.
Liam Gillick: Three Perspectives and a Short Scenario* Work 1988 – 2008 Mirrored Image: A ‘Volvo’ bar at Kunstverein München runs until November 16, 2008.
Opening, September 26, 2008.
PS: Liam Gillick will be the artist presented at the German Pavilion during the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009.
