Liam Gillick originally proposed that all the products and services made by Mexican company LGD LUCK SA be exhibited and displayed in a gallery context. In Gallery 2, artists Brian Reed and Len Horsey have realised and reconceptualised Liam Gillick’s original idea by transforming the space into a mock business fair pavilion, advertising the products of the Mexican company LGD LUCK SA.Gallery 3 presented the first comprehensive UK display of Strategic Questions 2002-2010 curated by Gavin Wade, with a new commission from Zurich based artist group RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co). Responding to the question What is Wealth? RELAX invite visitors to consider ‘waste as wealth’, through a publication, a new installation containing a caged depositary of strategic answers, and a process of exchange of personal wealth.
