Gaillard (born 1980 in Paris, lives and works in Paris) questions the heritage of modernism and man’s traces in nature through videos, performances, photographs, paintings and installations that deal with the notion of entropy. Often taking architecture as a metaphor and a symbol, he navigates between minimalist, Land art and Romantic aesthetics to rehabilitate the ruin as a departing point for creation. He recently had solo shows in the Fredericianum Museum, Kassel, the Hayward Gallery, London and the Museo de Arte Contmporaneo di Castilla y Leon, and his work was exhibited at the New Museum, New York, the Tate Modern, London Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico, Kunsthalle Basel, and was part of the 5th Berlin Biennial.
The french symphonic composer, Koudlam, is a long-time collaborator of Gaillard.
