Gil explores sound as a plastic medium, crafting sonic events that can be expanded, compressed, and twisted; filling, narrowing, dividing, coloring, saturating, and emptying the space of listening.
The artist’s ‘sculptural’ approach to sound is predominantly founded on the human’s natural ability to interpret the physical properties of a space, such as height, width, and depth, through the act of hearing.
Due to sound’s intrinsic temporality, Gil’s sonic constructions, unlike traditional sculptural works, are not fixed objects in space. They provide sonic cues, which are decoded by the listener’s mind as virtual, moving volumes in space. Thus, the artist’s work is completed only when the listener actively engages in a personal dialog with the sound and space. The work becomes a context in which the listener is encouraged to contemplate the act of listening as a phenomenon, intentionally disassociated from narrative or representation.
Gil has presented work in venues such as Art Miami Art Fair, Eyebeam (New York, NY), The Loop Festival (Barcelona, Spain), Diapason Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Harvestworks (New York, NY), Issue Project Room (Brooklyn, NY), ASPN Gallery (Leipzig, Germany), and the Subtropics Biennial (Miami, FL)
