  • Catalogue Essay

    Anne Schneider-Wilson in conversation with Liam Gillick on his collaboration with Edition Schellmann, 2019

    Anne Schneider-Wilson: Why and how did you come to work with Jörg Schellmann?
    Liam Gillick: Jörg approached me. He had worked with key artists who take quite different positions - from Beuys to Judd. It was very easy to say yes and an honour to become part of such a history.

    ASW:Did working with Jörg change your approach to later works?
    LM: Jörg likes to push the limits of production quality. He does not like to restrict the artist. He can identify the strengths of an artist and see what might be missing. Jörg allowed me to experiment with ideas and that always affects what comes next.
