CYPRIEN GAILLARD: Where Nature Runs Riot
May 02 - July 18
Opening: May 01
Sprüth Magers

The core of the show is a major new film made by the artist over the last three years, and shot on locations in Berlin, Cleveland and Los Angeles. Through these locations, which have all featured in Gaillard's previous work, the artist reflects upon ideas and phenomena that have held his interest since the beginning of his artistic practice: the dis- and relocation of landmarks and vegetation, misguided urban planning and cultural vandalism, and the anachronisms that constitute the world around us.
