More Really Shiny Things That Dont Mean Anything

Gassiot House
Ryan Gander's work often plays with historic paradigms which he then gives a contemporary humour and relevance.This sculpture is made up thousands of objects to form a large ball: it's as if the core is magnetic and has attracted all the shiny useless objects that fill a city. The work explores ideas of a public sculpture which normally have a historic legacy of reprecent the fortitude of an institution or person. In this case, the sculpture has the scale and materially of a work of significance but in actual fact is simply an assortment of things that don't really mean anything.
