British conceptual artist Ryan Gander’s works fuse elements of architecture, design, language, and planning, among other sources of ideas and imagery. His work often questions assumptions about object making—as in the case of “I need Some Meaning I can Memorize (The Invisible Pull),” an installation consisting of the wind blowing through the empty monumental entry hall of the Fridericanum at dOCUMENTA (13), in Kassel. Gander has described himself as having several artistic practices. Beyond sculpture and installation, he writes theatre scripts, makes jewellery and designs clothes, among other activities. Gander has exhibited at leading art institutions worldwide, including the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim Museum and the Public Art Fund in New York, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and Tate Britain in London.

In 2012 Ryan Gander and Mario Garcia Torres collaborated on an Absolut Art Bar at dOCUMENTA (13).
