About the artwork
This is the final edition available in the series. Previously sold out and unavailable, this edition has been specially released from the Studio Voltaire Archive.
Ryan Gander is widely known as a conceptual artist, but his 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.
