Uri Auerbach

Uri works primarily with sculpture and installation to explore his interest in the social creation of meaning.

He tries to explore social narratives and concepts that have become distorted, mutated or corrupted over time: ideas that have become hollowed out by use and filled with new, often reversed or contrary meanings.

His work is frequently an assemblage of industrial processes and quotidian materials or found objects that seem to suggest these politics of revaluation. Uri often uses sound, video and electronic elements to create a type of living object that runs in an endless loop – a form that fuses the singular and the infinite.

His inspiration usually arrives via texts such as literary works, song lyrics, poetry, newspaper columns or philosophical writings. Concepts he has addressed in his work include fame, progress, leisure, sexuality, identity, health and luxury.
