Uri Aran, ‘Untitled’, 2013, Gavin Brown's Enterprise

About Uri Aran

Uri Aran’s sculptures and installations, composed of familiar objects, make frequent use of the table as a stage for everyday items such as personal photographs, cookies, or stuff found lying around his studio. Aran focuses on process, constantly arranging and reorganizing these objects and creating presentations connected by narrative threads. The curator Bartholomew Ryan wrote that Aran “makes use of familiar objects, from detritus to mementos, to bring the everyday into tension with the highly gestural, moving fluently between mediums and building meaning through accumulation.” His process also suggests design thinking, as the artist explores how a complex network of ideas can be flattened into a logical system.
