Hammer Projects: Cyprien Gaillard

Cyprien Gaillard‘s work manifests in a variety of forms from videos and photographs to drawings and sculptures. He reflects meanings and memories of monuments and landscapes that have been erased and replaced by the effects of time and social and cultural transformation. The artist investigates time and historical remembrance as demonstrated in forgotten monuments, wrecked ruins, and artifacts. During his residency at the Hammer, Gaillard traveled around California discovering hidden ruins, destroyed landscapes and other remnants of the recent past. This exhibition will feature a new installation of sculpture and a series of photographs produced during his residency at the Museum. Hammer Projects: Cyprien Gaillard is organized by Ali Subotnick, Hammer curator.
