Karlos Gil

Karlos Gil (1984, Toledo, Spain) lives and works in Madrid, Spain. He is interested in how objects’ narratives and interpretations transform when placed in new environments. Working with sculpture, installation, and architectural interventions, he creates scenarios which invite viewers to narrate the artworks, drawing on associations which spans conventional history to occult mythologies. Through abstraction and fragmentation, he investigates relationship between technological development and the principles of the natural world, to reflect on and challenge the fundamental distinctions of Modernity.

Karlos Gil studied at the School of Visuals Arts in New York and at the faculties of Fine Arts in Lisbon and Madrid where he earned his PhD in 2016. Recent solo exhibitions include Corporis Fabrica, Art Brussels (Brussels, 2018); Phantom Limbs, Galeria Francisco Fino (Lisbon, 2017); and Not Fish, Snake Scale, García Galeria (Madrid, 2017), among others.
