Ryan Gander's Scarborough Sculpture

Ryan Gander's Scarborough Sculpture

Drawing attention to the urgency of the climate crisis, Ryan Gander’s dolos-shaped sculpture awaits a covering of snow to achieve its complete form, inviting viewers to reflect on the effect of human actions in the present on the planet’s future.

'A Modernist alien’ positioned high on the cliffs of the ancient North Yorkshire coast, Ryan Gander’s ‘We Are Only Human (Incomplete Sculpture for Scarborough to be Finished by Snow)’ (2022) is the poignant subject of this film, led by Dr. Jeanine Griffin.
