Cyprien Gaillard

Fine Arts

Cyprien Gaillard works across a range of media including film, video, photography, collage, installation and live performance. His extraordinary cosmos gives new form to such phenomena as civilizational upheaval and geological time. Concerned with the wreckage of modernity and the intersections between human artefacts, urban geography and psychology, the Berlin-based artist’s work embraces a poetry of entropy that rearranges history to shed new light on the present.
Selected solo exhibitions include: TANK Shanghai (2019); Accelerator Konsthall, Stockholm (2019); Museum Tinguely, Basel (2019); K20–Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2016); Julia Stoschek Collection, Düsseldorf (2015); MoMA PS1, New York (2013); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2013); Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan (2012); Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2012); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2011); KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2011) and Kunsthalle Basel (2010). Significant group exhibitions include: 58th Venice Biennale (2019); Cleveland Triennial (2018); Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2018); Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris (2018); ARoS Triennial, Aarhus (2017); The Red Brick Art Museum, Beijing (2017); Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC (2017); Hayward Gallery, London (2016); 13th Biennale de Lyon (2015); 54th Venice Biennale (2011); Gwangju Biennal (2010) and 5th Berlin Biennale (2008).
