Gabriel Kuri
The Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin
January 31 – March 28, 2020

For his first solo exhibition in Ireland, Gabriel Kuri presents a new site-specific installation that recasts the cavernous architecture of the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin, creating a static field to reduce the building's energy use during the run of the exhibition.

The large-scale installation drastically transforms the space. It is made up of a makeshift dropped ceiling littered, in a seemingly accidental accumulation, with residues of human interactions and life; coins, cigarette butts, and moths. Each smoked cigarette or coin becomes a remnant, a punctuation mark in human interaction.

Gabriel Kuri: spending static to save gas is organized in collaboration with Oakville Galleries, Oakville, Canada.
