Uriel Orlow is known for his modular, multi-media installations that take specific locations and events as starting points and combine archival research with evocative visuals and sound. Orlow explores the spatial and pictorial conditions of history and memory. He focuses on what he refers to as the ‘blind spots of history’, meaning forgotten, overlooked or simply underrepresented historical events. Working across video, photography, drawing and sound the artist brings different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.
Orlow’s work was presented at Manifesta 9, the 54th Venice Bienniale and 8th Mercosul Biennial in Brazil. His work has been shown in numerous international solo exhibitions. These include shows at Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris (2013), Al Ma’mal Foundation, Jerusalem (2013), Kunsthaus Centre PasquArt, Switzerland (2012) and Kunstforening, Oslo (2012). Most recent group shows including Uriel Orlow have been held at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014 and 2013), CAC, Vilnius (2014), Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart (2014), Ludwig Museum, Budapest (2014), Bergen Assembly (2013), Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago (2012). Orlow’s work is also internationally represented in private and public collections.
