We are pleased to announce the solo exhibition “Explorers vs Pioneers” by Ryan Gander.
Ryan Gander appropriates the art history and the system of the art world playfully, activating the imagination of the spectators and tempting them to join his own world.
Dealing with the various layers of the meaning, his body of work provides spectators the opportunity to extend their perception.
In his fifth solo exhibition at TARO NASU, Gander explores his new conceptual practice, unveiling his new pottery works and bronze sculptures.
Born in Chester, UK in 1976. Lives and works in London, Suffolk.
