Karlos Gil


Toledo, Spain, 1984

Karlos Gil reflects on the different layers of interpretation and meaning of language and its non-communicative use through multiple conceptual strategies. Using a wide variety of media such as archival material, found objects, video, spoken word, readings, meta-installations, typography, infographics or recycled neon, it investigates the displacements of meaning with respect to the artistic object and examines its cognitive value as a specific knowledge production system. Karlos Gil has exhibited his work in national centers such as CA2M, Laboral, CCCB, La Capella, Matadero, La Casa Encendida, and international centers such as the George Pompidou Center, Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow or Salon Flux in London. Karlos Gil has a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, furthering his studies at the FBA in Lisbon and the School of Visual Arts in New York. His work is represented by García | Gallery, Madrid. He lives and works in Madrid.
