Kamilia Kard

Milan, 1981. Lives in Milan

Kard (http://kamiliakard.org) works on the digital, static or animated image, transforming it into animated GIFs, websites, prints, videos and installations. Her interest in classical and “traditional” images, taken from the immense archive offered by the Internet, is almost always inspired by personal stories, memories and fantasies. For example, the artist uses The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch on the Free Falling Bosch website to offer a dynamic representation of a contemporary issue: the sense of dizziness produced by a non-stop world, a sea of information resulting from infinite scrolling, and an instability established as a political, economic and social system. Other works by Kard show a personal predilection for nineteenth-century Russian and Hungarian academic painting, in which historic paintings and princely fantasies are contaminated with more contemporary images linked to fantasy, soft porn and the vernacular languages of the web, sprinkled with glitter effects and references to pop culture, and interwoven with more personal components, usually mediated through drawing.
