Gary Card On Sculpting With Masking Tape, His Favourite Zines And The Weird Things You'll Find In His Studio
'To call Gary Card a polymath seems too serious. It's true that his talents encompass many disciplines - think set design, illustration, sculpture and now zine-making - but the term neglects to acknowledge the unabounding and joyful creativity that characterises his work. Amongst Gary's impressive and diverse portfolio is the set for recent Balenciaga campaigns - including the one with the logo carpet, and the fetishistic images with draped mauve and red curtains, the pink-painted cardboard monsters from Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY's riotous SS18 show and the headpieces from Comme des Garçons SS12 collection. For his latest project, Gary Card has turned his attention to zine-making, spurred on by the liberation that comes with working without a brief. We caught up with him to talk Happy Breakfast, dream collaborations, and the weird things we can find in his studio..'
