Ryan Gander: The Gift

Solo show
East Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts
May 3 - July 16, 2022

Working from his father’s often repeated phrase ‘Time is your greatest asset’, internationally renowned conceptual artist Ryan Gander presents an exhibition examining the currency of time.

With the support of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival and Norwich University of the Arts the exhibition presents multiple new works, including Everything is Broken Down, 2022 in which the artist offers a free gift for every visitor.

With a coin, dispatched automatically by a motion sensor, Gander gifts an agent of dichotomy, a portable charm that presents a moment to make a choice, just as one might flip a coin. On one side ‘Time is your greatest asset’ on the other ‘Let the world take a turn’, the piece offers a decision between action or stillness, doing or not doing. A true exercise in agency, and a gesture towards the economic currency of time.
