Karlos Gil

A film screening program



We got to know Karlos Gil’s practice from a different point of view on the evening of December 1st, when Karlos will hosted a film screening program to take us through some of the inspirations for his work.

For this Background Evening, Karlos Gil showed the connections between his artistic practice, the pieces exhibited in his exhibition Timefall, and multiple audiovisual references. We watched parts from experimental Japanese cinema from the 80s, to avant-garde from the 60s and 70s, and cyberpunk video clips from the 90s; from new Chinese and Thai cinema to Japanese anime, science fiction and the weird fiction genre. Karlos showed the connections that these references have with the titles of his works, the forms that his objects unfold, and the immersive character of his films.

During the Background Evening, Karlos also took us with him through some of his older works, transforming this event into a sort of time machine, breathing from past towards future.


About Karlos Gil: Through painting, sculpture, and installation, Karlos Gil (b. 1984, Talavera ES), addresses the fundamental questions about what it means to be human in today’s world. His latest projects reflect on the relationship between technological development and the principles of the natural world, blurring the borderline between the organic and the artificial, the natural and the industrial.
