DUBLIN.- This, Liam Gillick's third exhibition at Kerlin Gallery, is his most physically ambitious and visually spectacular to date. The show is comprised of two new works; consuming the gallery space are 6 aluminium and Plexiglas structures entitled 'Complete Bin Development' and completing the exhibition' A Short Song', a two part, wall text in powder coated aluminium.

'Complete Bin Development' is a sequence of towered structures, which comprise of a series of open frameworks in a series of permutations. The work relates to the research into possible permutations available within car body production just prior to the introduction of completely automated production systems. At the same time the works are abstractions in their own right. The height of each stack is only limited by standard engineering rules. Each work can be constructed from any number of permutations of the wall structures. The works can be sited in exterior or interior locations. Any number of stacks can be located near each other - always separated by at least 1.50m.

The abstract structure always finds form as a relational backdrop to other activities, terrains and interactions. By destroying the abstract via making it concrete, the ambient and the temporary are heightened and become an enduring associative abstraction that replaces the lack in the artwork. The abstraction that is produced by abstract art is not a reflection of the abstraction at the start of the process. The making of a concrete structure produces further abstraction – the art object in this case is merely a marker or waypoint towards new abstraction.

Liam Gillick has had many solo exhibitions including From 199A to 199B: Liam Gillick, Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, 2012 and travelling to Magasin Centre National d'Art Contemporain de Grenoble in 2014; Museum Stzuki, Lodz, Poland, 2011; One long walk...
