Gabriel Kuri


Gabriel Kuri is a Mexican artist whose sculptures and installations critique the world of commerce. By combining site-specific content with the banality of mass-produced consumer objects and financial documents, he explores both formal and conceptual concerns. Residues of human interactions —plastic bags, advertising flyers, receipts, and tickets— are brought together with stones, coins, and cigarette butts, as well as industrial materials, such as cement, brushed steel, and insulation rolls. Kuri draws the viewer’s attention to the dynamic and unstable space at the intersection of two opposite concepts: in the precarious and yet precise meeting of the unexpected.
