  • Dr Uriel Orlow’s practice is research-based, process-oriented and multi-disciplinary, and includes film, photography, drawing, print and sound. He is known for single-screen film works, lecture performances and modular, multi-media installations, which focus on specific locations and micro-histories, and, in doing so, bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence. His work is concerned with spatial manifestations of memory, blind spots of representation and forms of haunting.
