“Architecture in the work of Cyprien Gaillard generally appears only in its undoing, in its collapse. His videos, photographs, and sculptures constitute a veritable catalogue of implosions and their aftermaths.” Tom Mc Donough, Parkett 94, 2014

“Cyprien Gaillard uses different media: from sculpture, photography and film, to installation, performance and large-scale interventions in public space. Gaillardʼs art illuminates civilization and cultural development and decay processes, traces of human activity, and the field of tension between architecture and nature. His project for Parkett “An Urgent Message About the Great Organ”, a sculpturally folded silkscreen print on aluminum likewise refers to a desperate fundraising campaign for a broken church organ.” -Artspace
