Ryan Gander: Soft Modernism
2017.3.29~5.7

Ryan Gander conceptually and wittily portrays stories of art, culture, and the artist’s personal experiences through various mediums of installation, media, painting, sculpture, photography, and texts.

Ryan Gander’s works are complex and mischievous, and within them, main themes are cleverly veiled with its meanings subtly implicated. Non-existence relationship between objects in different nature from everyday monotonous life and obliteration of realization upon existing notions are brought out onto the surface which gives room for an open interpretation. Other than the exploration of ambiguous relationships, the spectator’s imaginations and movements are crucial elements in Ryan Gander’s works. ‘Storytelling’ is the most significant part in the artist’s artworks carrying individual open ending. Ryan Gander hopes for the spectator to put down existing ideas, elitism of the art world, or any sort of knowledge on art, and to continue on the story that he had started. The artist does not settle in one particular style or category but challenges himself upon existing ideas with variety of mediums that result as sculptures, installation, language, and commercial products.

In this exhibition, recurring theme in Ryan Gander’s variety of works such as sculptures and paintings relating to childhood projections and children’s innate creative sensibilities and reference to modernism and witty interpretation of art history will be presented along with new installation works that project onto contemporary selfie culture and narcissism.
