Using his background in architecture as a starting point in the investigation of his work, Luis Úrculo seeks to redefine the possible tools, procedures, and formats within architecture. He is interested in all that is peripheral to architecture–the processes, developments and approaches that can be manipulated, sampled, and translated into other scales, adapting them to the composition of the project, creating new scenes, experiences, or expectations not previously contemplated. Fiction, representation, and interpretation of diverse domestic geographies are the basis for the development of his practice.
He has had solo exhibition at Santiago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo Wonder Site, Lisbon Triennale, Centro Cultural de Espana in Buenos Aires, and The Popular Workshop in San Francisco, among others. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, XIth Venice Biennial (Spanish Pavilion), MAXXI in Rome, and Storefront for Art & Architecture in New York.
