gelitin is comprised of four artists.
They met first in 1978, when they all attended a summercamp. They have been playing and working together. Since 1993 they began exhibiting internationally. Gallaries at which they've had shows include Galarie Emmanuel Perrotin, Miami, Leo Koenig Inc, New York, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Deitch Projects New York.
