About the The Work
Produced to coincide with The Library of Babel / In and Out of Place, an exhibition of more than 200 works from the Zabludowicz Collection curated by Anna-Catharina Gebbers as a result of her residency with the collection.
Gander created a hanging model depicting elements of the Didactease emblem in 3D form; the image reel features 14 3D photographs of this model, an image of the emblem itself is shown on the centre of the reel. The Didactease emblem uses advanced mathematical symbols to produce the sentence ‘There exists only one definition for everything, everywhere at any one time’ and is used repeatedly in Ryan Gander’s work.
About the Artist
Gander's practice touches on an assortment of subjects and media, ranging from video, text and lectures to painting, animation, children's books and etymology. One of his aims is to explore the systems with which we organize our lives; another is to question the parameters of artistic practice. For Enough to Start Over, Gander purchased a work by Jonathan Monk entitled In Edition (to tears) and photographed his mother wearing the earrings from the piece. Gander's reuse of these earrings raises questions of ownership and appropriation.
