Liam Gillick - How Are You Going to Behave? A Kitchen Cat Speaks

Regular price €10.00

Tax included.

This catalogue was published on the occasion of Liam Gillick’s exhibition at the German Pavilion, 53rd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2009, June 7 – November 22, 2009.

The book documents Gillick’s project for the German Pavilion. It contains an introduction by the curator Nicolaus Schafhausen, a text by the artist Liam Gillick about his work as well as the text spoken by the kitchen cat presented in the show: “She speaks from the present and fights against the echoes of building’s interior. Its history is one of misrepresentation, misunderstanding and desires. Thus, the pavilion becomes a location for endless self-circulating histories that – in the end – represents our history as well.”
