Uriel Orlow

Uriel Orlow is a Swiss-born artist with a diasporic background, living between Lisbon, London and Zurich. His research-based, process-oriented practice is often in dialogue with other disciplines. Projects engage with residues of colonialism, spatial manifestations of memory, social and ecological justice, blind spots of representation and plants as political actors. His multimedia installations focus on specific locations, micro-histories and forms of haunting. He has exhibited his work at major international survey exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale, Manifesta, and biennials in Berlin, Dakar, Kochi, and more. He is the 2023 recipient of the Swiss Grand Prix for Art/Prix Meret Oppenheim.
