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.

  • On Power, Picasso, and American People: An Interview with FAITH RINGGOLD

    Half a century before the latest protests at the Whitney Museum of Art, Faith Ringgold was there, in front of the museum alongside other activists demanding equitable representation of women and black artists in the institution’s exhibitions. As a painter she was influenced, as the European modernists she studied in college were, by the masks she saw while traveling in Africa in the 1970s. But she would never wear a mask herself. More

    Misshapen noses, frozen expressions and close-up shots of faded pink glitter create a grotesque ambiguity between animate and inanimate - as seen in this photoshoot conceived by Sasha Chaika, documenting Saint Petersburg’s bizarre Puppet Museum.More
  • UNPROFESSIONAL. INTIMATE. A LITTLE BIT LIKE A READYMADE.

    "Social media and society have something to do with the public square and having conversations and shared spaces. This project is a bit more running out into that space and shouting something out then running away. It's definitely a public statement, but there's no conversation really." Richard Turley and Lucas Mascatello on the possibility of intimacy in the New York-themed broadsheet CIVILIZATION. More
