Ignacio Uriarte
"Color Gradient 2", colored drawing, markers, office, minimal

About

Ignacio Uriarte created “Farbverlauf 2” (“Color Gradient 2”) by drawing straight lines, with the help of a so-called drawing machine, with almost empty markers that had been refilled by him with a specific color. After a few lines had been executed on the paper, Uriarte was changing the color. But not in the sense of absolutely exchanging the color (by choosing a new marker), but only by adding a new load of ink to the existing color. Thus, he handed over the possible future changes of the colored lines to the mechanism of how the ink went through the marker. In general, Uriarte (*1972 in Krefeld, lives in Berlin) is dealing in his work with the topic of the daily office-routine and he is working with / deconstructing materials that can be found in any kind of office. With these materials he creates drawings, installations, photographs and other works that have a poetic quality and that deal with questions of time, structure, order and monotony as they do deal with the creative potential in seemingly inefficient minutes at work, when – for instance – during a conversation one of the participants scribbles on a pad. With his conceptual approach as well as by using the materials of the office, he is creating a Dadaist link between the two worlds of work and art. Uriarte began his professional life working in commercial companies like Xerox or Siemens. At a certain moment in his life he decided that he could not stand any longer his daily routine in the office. Thus, he decided to become an artist – mainly self-taught, partly with an academic education in video and film. He is enjoying a lot of success since this monumental change of direction. His works have been shown in a lot of international solo- as well as group-exhibitions: Art and Alphabet at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg (g); EchtZeit, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn (g); Bürozeit, Kunstmuseum Villa Zanders, Bergisch Gladbach (s); Drawing now, Albertina, Vienna (g); The Bottom Line, SMAK Ghent (g); The sound of a line, Fondation Hermès, Tokyo (g); Unos y Ceros, MARCO, Vigo (s); Binaries, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Salt Lake City (s); Line of work, The Drawing Center, New York (s); Arbeitsraum, Deutsches Architektur Zentrum, Berlin (s); Origo, Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (g); WORKS, Centre d’Art La Panera, Lleidao and Sala Rekalde, Bilbao (s); Rotation 2, Ruler Space, Helsinki (g); Quatre sets de geometria I un full de paper, Arts Santa Mónica, Barcelona (g); Preferiría no hacerlo, Casa des Lago, Mexico City (g); Bürokünstler, Leopold Hoesch Museum, Düren (s); Verwaltungstakte, Stiftung für konkrete Kunst, Reutlingen (s); 210 x 297 cm, Kunstraum Lakeside, Klagenfurth am Wörthersee (s); xyz, Museo ABC, Madrid (s).
