Uriel Orlow makes multi-media installations that explore blind spots of history and forms of haunting. In his multifaceted installations he often uses photography, film and extensive archival research to investigate and re-visit events and places which continue to affect the present. He plays with the structure of narrative and image-making whilst also questioning the role of images, stories and artefacts in establishing and maintaining personal identities and collective histories.
Orlow studied at Central Saint Martins and the Slade School of Fine Art, as well as philosophy at the University of Geneva. He graduated with a PhD in Fine Art in 2002. Orlow received a 2012 Swiss Art Award at Art Basel. He is currently a senior research fellow at University of Westminster and visiting artist at HEAD, Geneva. Orlow lives and works in London.
