Gander is an artist whose work ranges from installations, sculptures and photographs to performative lectures, publications, inventions and interventions. Gander examines the conditions of art production and the cognitive process of the perception of art. His body of works forms a labyrinth of inter-related narratives often based on real incidents or characters or existing artworks. ‘Absence’ plays a central role in Gander’s work and lends the works an enigmatic aura. It invites the viewer to re-establish a story’s hidden character or object’s possible function and by that illuminates the process of making meaning of a work of art.
