Tell my mother not to worry (ii), 2012 by Ryan Gander Courtesy The Artist and Lisson GalleryAdrian Searle interviews artist Ryan Gander in the first of a series of artist interviews for The Guardian. Gander discusses his new works: a cast sculpture that resembles marble of his daughter’s secret fort, and a carved bureau that is conceptually about collisions between objects. He discusses his approach to making art in general, which relies on careful observation and the acknowledgement that everything is absurd: “It’s just being interested in the world. It’s enjoying keeping your eyes open and your wits about you.”Watch the video via The Guardian
