2-TIMES · Art
Liam Gillick,
‘Phantom
Structures’
@ Casey Kaplan


The exhibition: 
Consists of two 
new bodies of 
work in which 
Gillick demonstrates 
the disparities and 
harmonies between 
the abstract and 
conceptual 
investigations at 
the core of his 
practice. 

Series 1: 
Wall texts; 
executed in pale, 
shimmering vinyl.

Series 2: 
Abstract structures; 
powder-coated 
aluminum and 
transparent 
Plexiglas platforms, 
screens, corrals 
and barriers. 

Title reference: 
Phantom 
Structures 
explores the
ongoing 
relationships
in Gillick’s
work between 
contemplation 
and theory, in 
tension with the 
foundational
logic established
by his physical 
structures. 

"Gillick seeks to 
revisit the 
dysfunctional 
aspects of 
modernism and 
provide a renewed 
approach to 
abstraction.
