Artangel presents Locked Room Scenario by Ryan Gander, London - 30 August - 23 October

Locked Room Scenario, the most ambitious project to date by British artist Ryan Gander, goes on display in East London from 30 August to 23 October 2011.

Locked Room Scenario will take place in a warehouse in Hoxton. Inside a white cube exhibition space will be a diverse range of work from sculptures, paintings and photographs to performance and video. When visitors arrive, the building will be open but the exhibition will appear to be closed.

Offering only fragmentary glimpses of an enigmatic group show, inaccessible spaces, partially visible artworks and leftover or discarded pieces of information, Locked Room Scenario will invite the viewer to adopt a detective's mentality to piece together the available clues, scrutinise detail, and imagine what cannot be seen. An accumulation of evidence and encounters with objects, information and passers-by may precipitate an unnerving awareness of fact and fiction beginning to merge.

Locked Room Scenario is one of three major Artangel projects presented in London this autumn. The programme also includes the London premieres of two new commissions launched earlier this year at the Manchester International Festival.
