Ryan Gander is a collector. He keeps all sorts of documents to create from. His studio is full of found images, personal images, documents copied from internet or cutout of newspapers. In this series of 20 photographs, each image is constituted through a game of associations. Each photograph has a caption that details each element so the spectator can play. In a number of his works, lectures or texts, Ryan Gander is very attached to details, to anecdotes. He relays some of the information with great concern for exactitude which can seem futile and absurd but creates the poetic shift. He seeks to highlight invisible details of daily reality. All his works are in dialogue with one another. Each title also builds on the associations and complementaries between the works.
Ryan Gander was born in Chester, UK, in 1976. He lives and works in London.
