Ruins of the Apocalypse

Cities of Gold and Mirrors (Film Still), 2009 ©Cyprien Gaillard, courtesy Spruth Magers and Laura Bartlett Gallery, London

An installation of Cyprien Gaillard’s video works where modern architecture serves to raise questions about time and about human behaviour. Gaillard’s work is a form of fighting nostalgia and uses anachronism, combining structures and classic references from the worlds of painting and landscaping, to build his videos’ visual and sound narratives. The end result is an almost Machiavellian, entropic landscape that aims to show that the future is obsolete.
