As is traditionally the case with challenging works of conceptual art, …and their integrity was uncompromising by Ryan Gander consists of simple materials, here, the jumbled pieces of a partial puzzle, upon which Gander handwrote a quote from the ancient Spartan king Menelaus: “May it keep the wolves in the hills and the women in our beds.” A limited edition of 15, this intellectual and unconventional work probes the meaning and effects of incompletion, all the while eliciting frustration and amusement alike from the viewer.
