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.
Through May 5.
Paul Sacher-Anlage 2, Basel.
