Everything but the kitchen sink is included in the British artists’ third show at Lisson. Okay that might be a slight exaggeration, but a sink along with a tortured Hamley’s teddy bear, a dead pigeon, a chocolate bar, a nail covered baseball bat and other objects all made this year are included in Gander’s ‘Fieldwork’ installation. Reminiscent of ‘The Generation Game’, these works from the artist’s collection, travel around the upper gallery on a conveyor belt and can only be seen seen from a restricted viewpoint. Teasingly limiting our interaction with the work is a running theme throughout the show. The downstairs gallery is inaccessible, as it’s been filled with pebbles from a shingle beach near the artist’s home in Suffolk, while other works seem to have disappeared entirely and are only suggested through the discarded items that remain. As always Gander is playful both in his approach to art making and the presentation of it.
