Rashid Uri (b. 1982, Pescara, ITL) lives and works in Pescara, Italy.
The artist’s practice was cultivated in the studio under the mentorship of his father, an artist, curator and founding member of Museo Laboratorio Città Sant'Angelo PE; Uri has exhibited throughout Europe and recently at Central Park Gallery Los Angeles. He operates Soyuz Project Space in Pescara with writer and independent curator Marialuisa Pastò.
HIs work is the result of a research that takes isolation from its widest meaning as a starting point.
Through the use of building insulating materials and other media, He create works with extreme rigor and seemingly impenetrable, while at the same time preserving the discreet richness of the details proper to the textures of the chosen materials.
Rashid Uri explore a possible architecture, rigid, almost rationalist and precarious at the same time, made of fragile and light materials but with an extremely solid structure, which generates physical and imaginary spaces on the edge of the paradox between refuge and punishment.
