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.
