Uriel H. Caspi

Some artists embrace all the different interpretations of their work, some are most happy when people ‘get it’. Uriel Caspi firmly belongs to the latter category. His sculptures can best be seen as formal investigations that move between past, present and future along several lines. Some series take up the visual language of Middle-Eastern archaeological artifacts to project them onto a posthuman era when nature and technology become indistinguishable. Others transform everyday items into bold designs that are yet to arrive. The centuries-old building technique Caspi deploys, jarre-à-la-corde, combines two of the earliest human inventions – rope and ceramics – in a process that makes the construction an explicit part of the final piece. Surface, structure, colour all contribute to the sense that these very tangible objects somehow belong to another reality. At EKWC Caspi press-moulded a series of human-size sculptures that will be installed upright to playfully confront the viewers.
