CYPRIEN GAILLARD, The Berlin Archive 2009–10

032c workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present CYPRIEN GAILLARD’s “Berlin Archive 2009–10.” A compilation of original works, source material, and ephemera from Gaillard’s past exhibitions, “Berlin Archive 2009–10” presents a library of images, texts, and artifacts that have affected and figured in Gaillard’s work during his current Berlin residency.

Gaillard (*1980) exacerbates our understanding and experience of modernism and its architecture through the breaking point where loss becomes potential, and vice versa. With a particular fascination with failed utopias, demolition, ruins, the clash between culture and nature, and the creative forces that emerge therein, Gaillard’s multi-media work provokes the present by confronting the past.

Included in the vitrine are rare architecture and land-art books, Gaillard’s own documentation of urban demolition and others’ land-art, as well as artifacts from sites such as Angkor, Cambodia and the deserted Iraqui Embassy in Berlin. Gaillard was first featured in 032c magazine in issue 13, and previously exhibited in 032c workshop’s group show, “Industrial Light Magic,” in New York, November 2009.

What is the best non-physical preservation method for sound? Is film editing a way of ordering memories? Is repetition therapeutic? Are all films fictional? Have physical forms slipped into obsolescence? Did Erik Satie have an anxiety disorder? Is background music parasympathetic? Are physical players more virtuosic than virtual instruments? Is thought finite? Is physical music a fetish? Is reality fictional? What is the most elegant way to float between corporeal and ethereal forms? Do memories deteriorate and fade like audio signals exposed to the elements?More

  • Dev Hynes Collaborates with OAMC and Adidas on a Capsule Collection

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
