Uri Aran, b. 1977, Israel; lives in New York. Aran’s drawings, videos, and sculptures animate the space between purpose and improvisation, work and instinct, man and animal. Concerned with organising structures, he explores the notion of narrative in his video works; using ready-made objects and hand crafted objects in his sculptural arrangements in a way that reveals the underlying hierarchies implicit in the culture of everyday language and objects.
Aran graduated from Columbia
University in 2007. His solo presentations include Five
minutes before, South London Gallery, London; and here, here and here, Kunsthalle Zürich, both 2013. His work has
also been shown at Whitney Biennial, 2014 and Venice Biennial 2013.
