"Underground Resistance and Urban Renewal", 2015 - Cyprien Gaillard
Cyprien Gaillard is a contemporary French artist. His work examines with humour the traces man leaves on nature, swinging between minimalism, vandalism, romanticism and Land Art. He uses a wide range of media: sculpture, painting, engraving, photography, video, performance and intervention in public spaces.
UR, his 2012 exhibition at the Pompidou Centre, focused on the destruction and reconstruction of the nearby Paris Halles.
Whether the ruins are ancient or modern, restored or abandoned is all the same to him - his installations try to shake us by confronting us with the endless cycle of construction, destruction and reconstruction proper to mankind and our relationship to history and its vestiges.
