Ryan Gander
You see with no lights

You see without light is a group of photographs around the theme of Bauhaus. This includes a reference to one of Gander’s works which is the Bauhaus manifesto without dots on the letter ‘i’, as well as drawings of his ideal art school.

Ryan Gander’s practice explores what-ifs, questioning the structural limits and rules of society and being. His work, which ranges from installations, sculptures and photographs, to performative lectures, publications, inventions and intervention, looks at the production of art and culture, to enquire into the processes through which art is perceived and valued. The spirit of his practice centers on development, education, and storytelling, hoping to evoke immediate and honest engagements by the viewer with his narratives. Gander is a collector. His studio is filled with found images, personal images, printed documents and newspaper clippings.
