Ryan Gander

Ryan Gander (1976)

Woont in London, UK. Werkt in London, UK.

Ryan Gander maakt gebruik van tal van media van installaties, sculpturen en foto's tot performatieve lezingen, publicaties, uitvindingen en interventies. Gander onderzoekt de voorwaarden van kunstproductie en het cognitieve proces van de perceptie van kunst. Zijn oeuvre vormt een labyrint van onderling verwante verhalen, die vaak zijn gebaseerd op echte voorvallen of personages of bestaande kunstwerken. 'Afwezigheid' speelt een centrale rol in het werk van Gander en verleent de werken een enigmatisch aura. Op die manier nodigt Gander de toeschouwer uit om het verborgen karakter van een verhaal of de mogelijke functie van een object in te vullen en daarmee het proces van betekenisgeving van een kunstwerk te belichten.
