ACCA, Australian Center for Contemporary Art, Victoria
4 June - 2 AUGUST 2015
One of Britain’s most prolific artists, Gander is known for creating playful, engaging works in a range of mediums, from installation, sculptures and photographs to performative lectures, publications, inventions and interventions.
Through associative thought processes that connect the everyday and the esoteric, the overlooked and the commonplace, Gander’s works involve a questioning of language and knowledge, and a reinvention of the modes of appearance and creation of an artwork. His work can be reminiscent of a puzzle, a network with multiple connections, the fragments of an embedded story or a huge set of hidden clues to be deciphered. Through these means Gander encourages viewers to make their own connections and invent their own narrative in order to solve the charade staged by the artist in his work.
Read Only, curated by ACCA’s Artistic Director Juliana Engberg and Associate Curator Hannah Mathews, will bring together a collection of Gander’s more recent video, installation and mixed-media works. A highlight is the acclaimed Ampersand (2012) comprised of 66 everyday items and works from the artist’s collection, presented on a conveyor belt set on a continuous cycle behind a wall in the gallery.
The exhibition will also include works from the 2013 series Pushed into a corner by the logic of my own making along with Two hundred and sixty seven degrees below every kind of zero, 2014 and Porthole to Culturefield Revisited, 2010.
