Writing - an exhibition of works by ignacio uriarte

Date: June 13, 2013
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: R&D, 691 Auahi Street

With todayʻs technologies, “writing” for the most part, has migrated to digital formats. It is entirely possible to communicate volumes of information without creating anything physical. This exhibition is made up of three humble works – a paper installation, a sound piece and a slide projection – that reflect upon the physical and metaphysical aspects of writing. The works use poetic, sculptural, mathematical and musical means to draw out familiar or nostalgic notions of writing.

Ignacio Uriarte (b. 1972, Krefeld, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He studied Business Administration and worked for major corporations until 2001 when he left the corporate world to dedicate his time to his art practice. Uriarteʻs work is marked by its elegant employment of structure and patterns to shed light on the travails and whimsy of both enduring and bygone materials of “work.” He recently completed a solo show at the Drawing Center in New York.
