about this work
In his new artist book, Gabriel Kuri presents a meticulous indexation and taxonomy of his collection of stolen wooden doorstops. The publication shows an overview of his collectuion in a way inspired equally by the canonical conceptual artist book, as well as the visual layout of product specifications in commercial catalogues. As a special edition of the book, Gabriel Kuri made an inkjet on Baryta print of one of his wooden doorstops.
about Gabriel Kuri
Gabriel Kuri’s oeuvre encompasses diverse media including sculpture, collage, installation and photography. A recurrent choice of everyday objects, especially materials related to consumption (e.g. receipts, plastic bags, cigarette butts, etc.), visualizes a complex vocabulary, which mostly deals with issues such as consumerism, economics, politics and temporality. In this way, Kuri integrates everyday life into his concise and formally restrained works, often laced with wry humour.
