In his largest UK exhibition to date, award-winning artist Cyprien Gaillard presented two major film installations. The works show contemporary architecture as a modern ruin on the verge of being taken over by nature. Real Remnants of Fictive Wars (Part V) is a 35mm film depicting a cloud of smoke engulfing a romantic landscape, as a violent yet mesmerisingly beautiful act. Cities of Gold and Mirrors connects archaeological and human ruin in its hypnotic depiction of the ancient city of Cancun.
