Uriel Orlow is known for his modular, multi-media installations that take specific locations and events as starting points and combine archival research with evocative visuals and sound. Orlow explores the spatial and pictorial conditions of history and memory, focusing on blind spots of representation and forms of haunting. Working across video, photography, drawing and sound Orlow brings different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.
Orlow studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and The Slade School of Art, London and philosophy at University of Geneva. He was the recipient of a prestigious Swiss Art Award in both 2008 and 2009. He has exhibited widely in Britain, Switzerland and internationally, and his films been screened at Tate Modern, London; the International Short Film Festival, Oberhausen; Tank.tv; Whitechapel Gallery, London; Locarno Film Festival; Videonale Kunstmuseum Bonn; BFI London; The BBC Big Screen, Manchester; Arnolfini Bristol; and at the Biennale of the Moving Image, Geneva.
