LIAM GILLICK

Folded Extracted Personified

Liam Gillick’s "Folded Extracted Personified" is a large-scale interactive work installed throughout MIA Park consisting of multiple unique “head-in-the-hole” panels.  Commissioned for the inauguration of the National Museum of Qatar, the work draws inspiration from the collections of Doha's newest museum and that of the celebrated Museum of Islamic Art. 

Each panel features a unique work from the museum collections with visitors invited to place their heads within the context of each historic depiction (the actual museum object depicted and its location can be found by scanning the barcode on the lower corner of each sculpture).  Part minimal sculpture, part playground attraction, Gillick's installation playfully responds to MIA Park as a place for social gatherings, weekend bazaars and leisure activities.

Liam Gillick (born Aylesbury, United Kingdom, 1964) is a New York based artist whose diverse practice encompasses sculpture, installation, public projects and texts.
