Ryan Gander (b. 1976, Chester, UK) is an artist living and working in London and Suffolk. Through associative thought processes that connect the everyday and the esoteric, his artworks materialise in many different forms: from sculpture to film, writing, graphic design, installation, performance, and more. Gander’s work involves a questioning of language and knowledge, a reinvention of the modes of appearance and creation of an artwork.

He has exhibited internationally for over a decade including at the National Museum of Art Osaka, Japan (2017); Musee d'art contemporain de Montréal, Montréal, Canada (2016); Manchester Art Gallery, UK (2014); Tate Britain, London, UK (2013); Tate Liverpool, UK (2013); dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel, Germany (2012); and Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York, USA (2010).
