Ryan Gander’s exhibitions are held simultaneously in three different locations/galleries in Tokyo this time and each shows have its own concepts: one of three exhibitions, our show’s keywords are related to time and existence, such as "para-possible situation’, ‘Ogenblik!’, and ‘déjà vu’.


'I love these words, the idea of recursive narrative. Because they recognize that time is fleeting and that we are not only moving into the future, but we are moving in all directions," ― Ryan Gander

For our show, Gander specifically chose the theme from the two series: "Doin’ everythin’ and feelin’ nothin’ / Double Damage" and "Four Dimension Experiential Prototype".

"Doin’ everythin’ and feelin’ nothin’ / Double Damage" series includes the one of the expressions which can be observed from Gander’s past practices. The duct tape-look-alike artwork seems to cover the damaged area, or alternatively, as if it tries to hide the censored part to the viewers’ eyes by covering it.

"Four Dimension Experiential Prototype" series is about examining how an acclaimed artist develops his own identity. The series gives us the chances of understanding the framework that Picasso’s persona exceeds the artwork of the artist (Moonlighting, Ryan Gander, 2018, courtesy of Taro Nasu). What lies the difference in between ‘the real existance of Picasso’ and ‘our understanding of Picasso’?

Artworks from the two series added very new texture, the expression never existed before, thanks to RICOH’S 2.5 print technique called StareReap. StareReap gives the chances to the motifs of artworks adding the sense of reality and the technique enables to strengthen the context.

The artist is giving the hint from the statement, and you the viewer would enjoy taking a walk in the imagination and savor the exhibition. We would like you to enjoy the world of Ryan Gander on site with us at RICOH ART GALLERY.
