Karlos Gil

The domain of gods and monsters; of birth and burial, where extraordinary events come to pass. Dark, dangerous and alienated: caves are places of visions and experiences both sacred and profane. More recently, they have become home to data farms, seed vaults, communication cables and doomsday bunkers.

With his first solo exhibition in The Netherlands titled Timefall, Karlos Gil turned the space of 1646 into a cave detached from the conventions of time. In his tapestries, sculpture and video work, Karlos reappropriates past and present industrial production methods combined with fictional elements in order to craft imagery for possible futures.

Through the deep depths of a lost civilization, where apocalyptic landscapes frame the stage for a species that has evolved from our environmentally challenged reality, Timefall invited the viewer to be aware of the power and potential that science fiction and cinema have. An awareness of how these influence our perception of the past and how we imagine the future, for us to take agency over worlds to come.

This exhibition was made in collaboration with Museo Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (CA2M) Madrid.


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. 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. He has had numerous international exhibitions at such venues as Centre Pompidou, Paris; HKW, Berlin; Witte de With, Rotterdam; NTU CCA, Singapore, Gasworks, London; Fondazione Baruchello, Rome; CRAC–Montbeliard; Galeria Luisa Strina, Sao Paulo; MARCO, Vigo; CA2M, Madrid. He has participated in III Moscow International Biennale (2012) and Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria) in 2020.
