In Liam Gillick's Novce/Ecvon, the palindrome of the title refers to the unity of opposites, the philosophical notion that complete opposites depend upon each other for meaning. Just as one pattern is entirely devoid of color, the other is resplendent with it.

About Liam Gillick

Young British Artist Liam Gillick is primarily interested in analyzing structures, social organizations, and human interaction. Using mass-produced materials, such as aluminum, chipboard, and Plexiglas, Gillick creates modular objects that he arranges in site-specific installations to explore how evidence of our social, political, and economic systems are embedded in the built environment. An early practitioner of Relational Aesthetics, Gillick's cross-disciplinary practice also comprises music composition, writing, and curatorial projects.
