Within the Artists-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host the artist Jay Gard. Born in 1984 in Halle, Germany, Gard studied painting and graphics at the Hochschule für Kunst und Design (Burg Giebichenstein) in Halle and in 2008 he continued his higher education at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig (HGB). His 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. Jay currently lives and works in Berlin and will be staying in Studio Verde during March 2023.
