Gabriel Kuri: Nobody Needs To Know the Price of your Saab

Published by Blaffer Art Museum
Text by Claudia Schmuckli, Elena Filipovic, Abraham Cruzvillegas.

Over the past decade, Gabriel Kuri (born 1970) has been ransacking the paradoxes of material consumption, extracting both visual and linguistic value from the tracking systems and trivial marketing mechanisms that fill our daily lives. Kuri's sculptures and collages are often fashioned from the residue of monetary exchanges and consumed goods that the artist collects on a daily basis, but their richness lies in their unusual calibration of manual and conceptual properties: his works reward eye and mind equally. "Model for a Victory Parade," for example, consists of a conveyor belt with a crumpled energy-drink can trapped and perpetually tumbling at one end. The visual appeal of this work quickly opens out into speculations on the ironies of humankind's energy consumption. Nobody Needs to Know the Price of Your Saab is presented in conjunction with Kuri's survey at Blaffer Art Museum.
