The B-side of the Record
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, focusing on blind spots of representation and forms of haunting. Working across video, photography, drawing and sound Orlow brings different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.
Orlow’s work was presented at major international exhibitions such as Manifesta 9 (2012), the 54th Venice Bienniale (2011) and 8th Mercosul Biennial in Brazil (2011). He also received a 2012 Swiss Art Award at Art Basel. He is currently a senior research fellow at University of Westminster and speaks frequently at art colleges and conferences. He studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and The Slade School of Art, London and philosophy at the University of Geneva, graduating with a PhD in Fine Art in 2002. Orlow’s work is represented in private and public collections internationally.
