English art from Paris Ryan Gander’s work I is… (x)
Ryan Gander’s sculpture “I is… (x)” (200 x 125 x 130 cm), created in 2014, was displayed at the “Inside” exhibition in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris not long ago (November 2014 – January 2015). “I is…” is the title of a series of works that the artist created together with his four year-old daughter Olive. Like all other children, she too loves to build forts – a basic instinct that was of existential meaning in primitive times. Prepared in a similar way to playing tag (chasing), building a hideout is one of the five basic survival skills.
