LIAM GILLICK

Liam Gillick’s art exposes the dysfunctional aspects of a modernist legacy in terms of abstraction and architecture when framed within a globalized, neo-liberal consensus. Gillick’s work has subsequently been included in numerous important exhibitions including documenta and the Venice Biennales representing Germany in 2009.

 

Over the last twenty five years Gillick has also been a prolific composer of electronic music. Gillick collaborated with Brigade Commerz on Liam Gillick & Corinne Jones. For this picture vinyl he designed the graphic which is inverted on the B-side.

 

In 2012 the Charity Pin Badges Project in cooperation with B.H. Mayer’s IdentitySign started with Liam Gillick in support of the children’s charity, UNICEF. With Gillick on board, Brigade Commerz had gained a major figure representing »socially engaged artistic practice«, a genre that does not forsake its social responsibility. With his wide range of artistic activity, ranging from brightly coloured minimalist sculptures and expansive installations right through to music, publications and plays, this artist picks up on a key impetus for the modern spirit: the interaction of the aesthetic with the social.

Art, Gillick is convinced, can at least reflect the changes in our urban environment, if not generate change itself. In this creative tension, social commitment becomes a key component of artistic production and manifests itself in a huge variety of ways. Brigade Commerz’ Charity Pin Badges Project sees itself as a small contribution to making a change in this world that could start in no better place than strengthening the rights of children.

The net proceeds from sales go to the children’s charity, UNICEF
