KORNFELD Galerie is pleased to announce our first exhibition with artist Jay Gard (*1984, in Halle, Germany) titled The Beginning of Shaping in our special event venue 69salon.
This exhibition will show a variety of works going from paintings to sculptures, objects and a mixture of them. All these works correlate to Jays distinctive venues of creating objects that become pieces of art on their own, capturing his distinctive style that dabbles between functionality in design with his adventurous artistic aesthetic that is reminiscent of the 1970s.
About the artist
Born 1984, in Halle (Saale), Germany
Lives and works in Berlin
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.
