Uri Aran:

    Untitled (WWW)

    7 x 5 x 5 inches
    Edition of 24

    Through the use of original video footage, appropriated or de-contextualized images and formal elements from easily digested models of cultural production, Uri Aran builds collaged structures and time lines. His work explores the humor, poetics and manipulations of everyday objects and popularly held beliefs. Aran calls attention to the nuances within a world of givens. Often deploying a combination of dry narrative and lush imagery, Aran's work is undermined by his own constructions, which can be read as devastated landscapes where a loss of logic mirrors the sense of a set of promises that are currently unfulfilled.

    Uri Aran was born in Israel in 1977, and lives and works in New York. Aran's work appeared in Knights Move, a group exhibition at SculptureCenter in 2010.
