Gelatin & Liam Gillick. Stinking Dawn

Stinking Dawn is a walk-in stage design that functions as a changing film setting. Monumental modular architecture sets the location for a film by Gelatin and Liam Gillick that will be shot in situ. Directed by Gillick and based on his script, Gelatin will play the leading roles in this experimental film that explores the limits of human tolerance in the face of oppression, political crises and excessive self-deception.

During the shooting period (4 – 13 July), all visitors to the exhibition will be potential performers. Anyone who plays a part in Gillick and Gelitin’s film Stinking Dawn will utter questions, statements and phrases, shouting or whispering them as directed. After the shooting in July, the artists will move to the studio for the film’s post-production; the exhibition will remain on view, and a succession of – finished or provisional – edited sequences will be projected on the sceneries in the gallery.

Gelatin are four Vienna-based artists. They first met in 1978, when they all attended a summer camp and have been working and playing together ever since. They began exhibiting internationally in 1993. Gelatin’s practice incorporates the codes of relational aesthetics and invented a sculptural language and approach that is anarchic and irreverent. Humor and logic, as well as chaotic precision, are key instruments in the conception of new works. Their art draws a line from the insular and individual to the open-ended and collective, from the overtly erotic to the sublimated joy of togetherness. Often, museum visitors become part of their performances, which aim at transforming audience into community.

Based in New York, Liam Gillick (b. Aylesbury, U.K., 1964) deploys multiple forms to expose the new ideological control systems that emerged at the beginning of the 1990s. He has developed a number of key narratives that often form the engine for a body of work. Gillick’s work exposes the dysfunctional aspects of a modernist legacy in terms of abstraction and architecture when framed within a globalized, neo-liberal consensus. His work has been included in numerous important exhibitions including documenta and the Venice, Berlin and Istanbul Biennales; he represented Germany in Venice in 2009.
