Gabriel Kuri

In conversation with Georgina Jackson

Working across sculpture, collage, installation and other media, Mexican-born, Brussels-based artist Gabriel Kuri is fascinated by the logic of everyday objects and resources. Often using repurposed materials – natural, industrial and otherwise – he links questions of form with how we value, circulate and assign function.

In this conversation our Director, Georgina Jackson talks to Gabriel Kuri about, amongst other things, their collaboration on the spending static to save gas exhibition project.
