Liam Gillick & Lawrence Weiner. A Syntax of Dependency:. Mousse Publishing.

This publication documents the monumental, collaborative work that Liam Gillick and Lawrence Weiner produced for the Antwerp museum of contemporary art MuHKA in the spring of 2011. Poignantly titled “A Syntax of Dependency:, the project could be viewed as the outcome of a twenty-year dialogue between the artists, their respective artistic practices and separate generations. This giant floor piece, consisting of an abstract linoleum pattern containing an array of phrases, took up the museum’s entire first floor – its site – and specifically meant that the end of the exhibition also entailed the work’s irreversible destruction. This photo novella – complete with fragments of a conversation between both artists and a short text by exhibition curator Dieter Roelstraete – captures the work in its unique desolate splendor.
