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.

Text by Gabriel Kuri, Mercedes Vicente, Marcella Becaria.

Gabriel Kuri's sculptural work is sometimes mistakenly associated with the spirit of Arte Povera, doubtless because of his use of household materials and commonplace objects. But it is a wider dailiness, rather than a specific humility or poverty, that his work asserts; it sits between the familiarity of the readymade sculpture and the sculpturally built. Consequently his materials can range from store receipts to fabric or rock. "Going back home with two big bags of shopping: that sensation for me is sculpture," he says. And Thanks in Advance shows works completed between 2006 and 2007 at the Govett-Brewster Artist in Residence program in New Zealand. Critical essays by the curators of the Govett-Brewster gallery and the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art in Turin shed light on Kuri's artistic vision within the context of contemporary art practice.
