Uriel Orlow lives and works in London and Zurich. His practice is research-based, process-oriented and multi-disciplinary including film, photography, drawing and sound. He 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.
Solo exhibitions include The Showroom, London; Castello di Rivoli, Turin; Depo, Istanbul; John Hansard Gallery, Southampton; Centre PasquArt Biel; Spike Island, Bristol; Jewish Museum New York.
Orlow’s work was presented at survey exhibitions including the 54th Venice Biennale, Sharjah Biennal 13, Manifesta 9, EVA International (2016, 2014), Edinburgh Art Festival, Recent British Artists Film and Video at Tate Britain, London (2015), Bergen Assembly and Aichi Triennale (2013); 8th Mercosul Biennial, Brazil (both 2011); 3rd Guangzhou Triennale.
