Gabriel Kuri: exploding count in flattened curve
End Date: 02/11/2020
Gabriel Kuri’s practice employs the use of the everyday: purchased, found and repurposed materials to investigate the relationship between rational structures and operating systems. Often linked to numerical categorisation, both in economic and hierarchical structures, Kuri filters and extracts visual and linguistic value through a process of physical and conceptual selection, with the objective of understanding the world at present. This process reflects upon what classifies ‘things’ and ‘objects’, for example; paper currencies, coin wrappers, receipts, tickets, magazine cut outs – dissecting their position within cultural, social and economic concerns, drawing attention to the acts of expenditure, consumption and the consequences of these transactions.
