Ignacio Uriarte Exhibition in Reykjavík

Ignacio Uriarte’s first solo exhibition opened at the i8 Gallery in Reykjavík yesterday. Uriarte gave up his career in business administration to work as a full-time artist. Seeing the possibilities afforded to him by his experience in the cubicle, however, he never left the office.


Using the same tools and methods of any office employee, Uriarte continues to work in a routine way with routine as his major focus, a press release from the gallery explains.

Starting with the smallest creative office gestures such as scribbling during a phone conversation or ripping a sheet of paper from a pad, Uriarte takes the systematic repetition of these small artistic moments according to predefined rules and transforms them into meta-routines, the gallery says in description of his art.
