Associative Ghost Template #2 is a wall-hung work that comprises two layers of Perspex, each punctured by apertures of various shapes and sizes. Each layer of Perspex relates to a collage made by the artist, and the laser-cut openings show the size and location of the objects originally used in the collage. It is one of a series of works that allude to invisibility and loose associative methodology, both recurring issues in Ryan Gander’s work. Gander encourages the imaginative possibilities created as the human brain struggles to find a connection between incongruent objects.
