Timefall - Karlos Gil
The domain of gods and monsters; of birth and burial, where extraordinary events come to pass. Dark, dangerous and detached from time: 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 turns the space of 1646 into a cave. A cave that conjures up futuristic beings from an eerie smoke filled landscape: a species that has evolved from our environmentally challenged world. In these deep depths of a lost civilization, Karlos’ work invites us to speculate about our joint future and to reflect on the things that shape our perceptions.
1646 is an artist initiative / project space in the center of The Hague. 1646 focuses on exchanges between local, national and international artists and artist initiatives, and offers a platform for discussion, research, production and presentation of autonomous visual art. 1646 is run by Johan Gustavsson (Sweden), Clara Palli Monguilod (Spain).
