This show uses the physical attributes of a painting exhibition to deal with concerns other than those of painting. Gander presents us with all the component parts of an exhibition of painting, a lightbox gallery sign, packing crate, palettes and paintings. He made a self portrait every day for year, showing only the palettes used to mix the paint. We will present Self Portrait XII, 31 circular glass palettes from August 2012 wall-mounted in a grid, the last work from this series. There will be 3 large paintings, which are realisations of paintings featured in Tintin and Alph-Art, the final and unfinished book from the comic strip series created by Hergé. Another work, Just, which looks like a neo-geo\ud painting is actually an oil painting of a glitch from a quicktime video of the artist. The way things collide (picture crate, meet museau), is a partially exposed and seemimgly unfinished carving of a transport crate with a pig's snout on top, hewn from a single block of wood. The crate is the correct dimensions to be used to transport Gustave Courbet's 'L'Origine du monde.' 'I just want you to know I can see through your mask,' 1987 by Aston Ernest, 2012, consists of 2 oil paintings, which are reproductions of two paintings which appear in the film 'The Rebel.' A lightbox sign renames the space. Marks on the floor show evidence of a struggle within the gallery.\ud \ud Gander’s work wears the mask of art history, in this instance using painting as a Trojan Horse to smuggle his conceptual narratives into the gallery.
