CYPRIEN GAILLARD

CYPRIEN GAILLARD—ROOTS CANAL is an exhibition of the films, photographs, and sculptures by the artist—mostly from the last five years—that “describe and evoke the perpetual destruction, preservation, and reconstruction of [our] urban spaces.”*

The show includes Gaillard’s excavator heads—on view in Europe for the first time—and the Sober City Polaroid series.
