Conceptual artist Ryan Gander’s eclectic output defies categorization, encompassing installations, sculptures, photos, texts, and reproductions that present wittily inconclusive narratives about art, culture, and the artist’s personal experiences. Gander often uses to text to infuse objects with a sense of “in-joking,” his titles making self-conscious references to various practices of art making and display. He has meticulously recreated famous art works in works like Remember me, mistakenly, although I’ve given you everything (Dexel) (2011)—based on an archival photograph of Walter Dexel’s Komposition mit grossem schwarzem L, (Composition with big black L) (1964)—which he presents alongside personal artifacts in cryptic exhibitions. Additionally, Gander’s experiences as an artist in a wheelchair often make their way into his pieces, including ‘Is the guilt in you too?’ (Cinema Verso) (2006), an installation in which he filled a gallery with obstacles, detritus, dead ends, and illusions meant to confound visitors and symbolize the inequitable difficulties faced by the disabled.
