This artist's book is based on Cyprien Gaillard's "Geographical Analogies," a collection of 900 Polaroids, carefully and rigorously arranged in a total of 100 showcases, telling many stories about landscapes, monuments, modernist buildings, and architectonic utopias, and just as many stories about decay, destruction, and devastation.
Designed by Ludovic Balland in close collaboration with the artist, this book is published with Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel; FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims; Kunsthalle Basel; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; as well as the support of DAAD, Berlin, and CNAP, Paris.
