Collection / Artists / Uriel Orlow

Uriel Orlow is a London-based artist.

Orlow is known for single screen film works, lecture performances and modular, multi-media installations that focus on specific locations and micro-histories and bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence. His work is concerned with spatial manifestations of memory, blind spots of representation and forms of haunting.

Orlow’s work was presented at recent survey exhibitions Edinburgh Art Festival, Recent British Artists Film and Video at Tate Britain, London, EVA International (2014), Bergen Assembly (2013), Manifesta 9 (2012); the 54th Venice Biennale and 8th Mercosul Biennial, Brazil (both 2011).

Orlow’s work has also been shown in museums, galleries and film-festivals internationally including Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, ICA and Gasworks, London; Palais de Tokyo, Maison Populaire, Bétonsalon, Paris; Les Complices and Helmhaus Zurich; Centre d’Art Contemporain and Centre de la Photographie, Geneva; Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart; Extra-City Antwerp; Alexacndira Contemporary Art Forum (ACFA) and Contemporary Image Collective (CIC) Cairo; Casa del Lago, Mexico City; Kunsthalle Budapest, Spike Island Bristol, Jewish Museum New York; Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago amongst others.
