This event has ended.

This exhibition will showcase Ryan Gander’s new installation work with playmobils.
Playmobil is a sectioned doll (figure) for children, popular all around the world as same as LEGO.This playmobil is known as its simplicity to represent the human characters, considering their occupation, nationality and historical context. In this show, Ryan Gander presents 500 playmobils surrounding the exhibition room and 10 bronze statues resembling the playmobil. Each figure’s combination is different from normal playmobil, and this divergence makes us feel incongruity. The dissonance of recognition shakes our build up common sense for the human nature and culture.
