Cyprien Gaillard (*1980) 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 New York and Berlin-based artist’s work embraces a poetry of entropy that rearranges history to shed new light on the present.
Espace Louis Vuitton, Munich
Through August 15, 2021
Espace Louis Vuitton Munich presents French artist Cyprien Gaillard’s exhibition WOLKENGARTEN. Throughout the years, the Collection has brought together a number of works from the artist, including sculptures, videos, engravings, and photographs.
Prolonging the unveiling of his works in the Collection first initiated in Paris in 2015, WOLKENGARTEN presents two video installations, Real Remnants of Fictive Wars V (2004) and Desniansky Raion (2007), in an exclusive display reinvented by the artist himself. These works, which belong to the Collection, are presented within the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s ongoing "Hors-les-murs" program.
