Uriel Orlow’s artworks explore blind spots of representation and investigate the spatial and pictorial conditions of history and memory. He works across media in video, photography, sound and drawing and creates modular, multi-media installations that bring archival research and different image-regimes, narrative modes and contemplation into correspondence.
