Gabriel Kuri

b. 1970, Mexico

Alternatively described as a "unique accountant" and a "poetic activist," Gabriel Kuri creates visually refined sculptures, collages, installations, and photographs, working from repurposed natural, industrial, and mass-produced objects. Often creating site specific works, Kuri is concerned with the circulation of commodities and information within the global marketplace. Artworks are not exempt from his scrutiny, with the artist evaluating their social and political impact in equal measure with their formal qualities. Pie charts are reimagined with interlocking bins, filled with the materials they quantify.

Soft Information: A Studio Visit With Gabriel Kuri Related Press Soft Information: A Studio Visit With Gabriel Kuri RanDian : 22 December 2016

We pass through a heavy iron gate and drive into the backyard of Gabriel Kuri’s studio in Culver City, California. Black volcanic rocks and grey stones of similar size—large enough to wrap your arms around—line the boundary where the property is fenced off on the left side. Behind them, I can see what seem to be stone casts of immensely oversize...
