Join the Dots and Make a Point
Based in Mexico City and Brussels, sculptor and installation artist Gabriel Kuri uses simple mass-produced objects and throwaway products from cigarette butts to sand, to explore and criticize political, economic and social conditions. This monograph-exhibition catalog beautifully reproduces each work and, equally important, the precise and deliberate positioning and surprising casualness that always characterize the presentation of his objects in an exhibition. A contributor to numerous international group exhibitions, such as the 5th Berlin Biennale (2008), “Brave New Worlds” at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2007), and “Unmonumental” at the New Museum, New York (2007), Kuri is an emerging artist who shifts the boundaries between art and the everyday, value and valueless-ness.
