The Museion exhibition is a key Italian date for the Mexican artist Gabriel Kuri, who this year is presenting solo shows in international museums such as the Kunstverein in Freiburg, the Houston University Museum in Houston and the Kunstverein in Bielefeld. Soft Information In Your Hard Facts brings together twenty-two sculptures, partly existing works and others specially commissioned for the show.

 

Gabriel Kuri’s artistic practice encompasses diverse media including sculpture, collage, installation and photography, using them to craft eloquent works of art. His recurrent choice of objects – receipts, plastic bags, stones – and issues, such as consumerism, economics and temporality, have forged a complex visual vocabulary that, while immediately recognizable, is constantly reformulated in relation to each context.

 

The exhibition conceived for Museion presents recent works, created over a period of seven years, made using a vast range of materials, such as plastic, cement, stone, chipboard, nylon and various ready-mades: found objects with slight modifications to their function deriving from the association with the context.

 

As the title suggests, Soft Information In Your Hard Facts revolves around the tension created by the dialectical opposition of hard and soft, in terms of both the actual composition of the works and the metaphorical and allusive meanings.
