Liam Gillick was born in Aylesbury, England, in 1964. In 1987 he graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Gillick is concerned with the way different properties of materials, structures and colour can affect our surroundings and therefore influence the way we behave. He works in many different medias and creates both spacious installations, graphically complex texts and minimalist objects - as well as publishing full- length books, compose music for films and produce architectural designs.

General for his work, however, is his widespread use of text and the meticulous theorising behind these: he is as much a writer as a maker of objects.
Liam Gillick's work has - among other places - appeared at Documenta X in Germany, the Whitechapel Art Gallery in England, and the Tate Britain, England.

In 2002 he was short-listed for the Turner Prize.
