Jay Gard

Jay Gard studied at the Academy of Fine Arts (Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst) in Leipzig and graduated the class of Installation and Space in 2011. Since 2022 he is a co-curator of BcmA Gallery in Berlin. In his artistic practice, Gard’s works range from space-filling installations to three-dimensional wall paintings. His pieces cite – sometimes ironically – artistic, cultural and design-related codes which he reinterprets and places in different contexts, stripping them of their original meaning.
