Art In America

Cyprien Gaillard

at Gladstone Gallery,
530 W. 21st Street

It's disorienting to walk into an otherwise pristine gallery space and be immediately dwarfed by Cyprien Gaillard's slightly altered demolition-themed readymades. Here the "scooping" parts of excavators, detached from the rest of the machine, are installed around the perimeter of the gallery, their openings facing inward. Gaillard's addition of delicate yellow onyx rods through the holes that once connected these pieces to the excavator arm act to subtly bring these steel monoliths into the realm of decorative art objects.
