100 Chairs in 100 Days and its 100 Ways
3rd Edition 3rd Size

A recalled dialogue from some time ago:

Martino: I will make 100 chairs

åbäke: What, the same one 100 times?

M: No, they will be different. They’ll be actual size 3D sketching, somehow, you know, instead of drawing on a piece of paper.

å: Sounds great. Do it in 100 days then.

Take as long as you might take, you might take long

 
Take as long as you might take, you might take long
by Ryan Gander
Photographs by Takashi Homma & Ryan Gander

Take as long as you might take, you might take long documents an installation by Ryan Gander, commissioned by and first exhibited at Daiwa Viewing Room, Hiroshima, Japan. A standard ceiling mounted sprinkler system in the otherwise empty gallery space is switched on for the duration of the show, the water being invisibly drained from the space and recycled back into the sprinkler system. During the exhibition Ryan Gander instigates and directs a photoshoot of three Japanese females modelling oversized Thom Browne men’s suits within the space. The images of the photoshoot are printed on the interior of the traditional Japanese binding method, meaning the reader must cut the publication to discover the hidden half of the book.

Ryan Gander
Ampersand



Can the fifth edition ever be published before the third?
Can this book be both a prelude and a sequel to an exhibition?
Did you ever notice the word ampers& contains itself? Esperlu&te aussi?
Did you know Roland Barthes’ Empire of Signs is apparently best read if one is born and raised in France but of Japanese descent?
Ryan Gander and I were once in a lift of a hotel in Tokyo when we noticed the absence of a button for the 13th floor. Despite our amusement at the superstitious gesture we later suggested at the front desk that they should have built the 13th floor, but prohibited access to it. An architectural ghost in need of physicality to truly abolish bad omens.
The present publication crystallises, for a fleeting moment (books are not eternal, you know), the ever expanding collection of Ryan Gander and the stories for which objects of all pedigree — artworks alongside coloured toilet paper – are the catalysts of. These short essays are an exploration of our surroundings, both normal and sublime, written with a steady hand and the sharp critical eye of a northern comedian cooler than Pharrell Williams. You think I go too far? I am so sincere I am not even paid to write this foreword.

“I have something for you, I’ll send it over. You know for four years now I have been trying to propagate shiso and it hasn’t grown. I tried everything: freezing and thawing the seeds, leaving them in the dark for a year, different temperatures and humidity… The seeds Taro sent me in February came up no problem, just in fine soil with a sheet of paper over the pot outside, no special equipment or lights. Crazy. The kitchen garden at home is now being taken over by green shiso plants with huge leaves everywhere. We have a glut, as the English call it. Fearful of it not reseeding and growing next year I’ve been stripping the leaves and producing shiso sugar syrup and shiso-infused vodka. The vodka is unbelievably good! I thought of proposing it to ABSOLUT as a new flavour. We’ll see. Anyway, I have a bottle for you! ”
