CYPRIEN GAILLARD
Artist Talk
EMILY CARR UNIVERSITY
Vancouver, B.C.

Between iconoclasm and minimal aesthetics, romanticism and Land Art, the work of Cyprien Gaillard questions man’s traces in nature with an archeological approach to recent history. Gaillard examines the relics of our built environment with an entropic view of destruction as the starting point of renewal.

Around the Block distills a collection of still images of a typical urban neighborhood into an idiosyncratic video continuum. The accompanying soundscape is not so delimited. It provides tempting glimpses into the distance.

The work forms a dynamic stream of familiar spaces, revealing much about the texture and syntax of our urban existence while questioning the culture of privatization and disconnection.

Hundreds of airplanes that can no longer fly the friendly skies end up here-deep in the Mojave Desert. At the Mojave Air and Spaceport’s “boneyard”, planes that are no longer valuable enough to be repaired and put back into service are cannibalized for spare parts. It’s not exactly a delicate operation.
