All our stories are incomplete… Colours of the imagination Collection Exhibitions curated by Ryan Gander
This event has ended.
This is the first major solo exhibition in Tokyo by UK-born Ryan Gander (1976). Gander is acclaimed worldwide for works inspired by art from many different periods and sources, and by very ordinary events in everyday life that would typically be soon forgotten. His practice spans a rich variety of genres, including objects, installation, painting, photography, and video. Underlying each work is the artistʼs abundant intellectual curiosity, driving his observation of the act of looking and his astute analysis of everyday experiences. His works have unexpected couplings, partially concealed information, and a streak of humour. They draw viewers into thoughts of both past and future. The first reaction is to typically a chuckle, followed by the surprise of discovery. The artist plans to turn the whole exhibition space into a single installation, including new works. Gander also curates the concurrent exhibition of works from the galleryʼs Terada Collection, applying a new perspective to the collection that TERADA Kotaro originally assembled to suit his own personal preferences. This experiment promises a fascinating result, incorporating the artistʼs eye, choices and tastes.
