In his largest UK exhibition to date, awardwinning artist Gaillard presents two major film installations. These cinematic 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 slow film of fire extinguisher smoke engulfing a romantic landscape, as a violent and mesmerizingly beautiful act. Cities of Gold and Mirrors brings together archaeological and human ruin in its hypnotic depiction of the ancient city of Cancun. Curated by AV Festival in partnership with mima.mima
