This fourteenth MAM Screen program showcases the video works of Cyprien Gaillard (b. 1980 in Paris, currently based in Berlin), who works in a range of media including film, video, photography, collage, installation and performance. 2010 winner of the Marcel Duchamp Prize and winner of Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst (The Nationalgalerie Prize for Young Artists) 2011, Gaillard gained wide attention for his 2011 solo show The Recovery of Discovery at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, and has continued to carve out an international niche for his practice that in Japan, has included the Aichi Triennale 2010, and French Window exhibition at the Mori Art Museum in 2011. MAM Screen 014 focuses on Gaillard’s videos, presenting a carefully curated selection of six works.
An acute observer, Gaillard sets human civilization against the much greater presence of nature, and critically analyzes how colonialism and capitalism consume cultures on the margins. He also uses a diverse array of techniques to depict how architecture and cities crumble amid the irresistible forces of nature and time, using his subject matters as proxies for thoughts about death and decay. Such perspectives will doubtless offer food for thought on matters of civilization and society as we begin to grapple with the issues that will confront us in the time of pandemic.
