New media artist Yuri Pattison uses digital technology, video and sculpture to investigate the political and social ramifications of rapidly developing technology and the depth of visual culture in the Internet age. His works are both physical and digital, taking space both on and offline to explore the notions of open communication, and the flexibility of labor boundaries in the modern workspace. Often taking the form of multi-screen video installations or technology-based sculptures, Pattison’s work is at once relevant and thought provoking.
Pattison is the recipient of the 2016 Frieze Artist Award. His work has been shown in a number of venues including solo exhibitions at Helga Maria Klosterfelde Edition, Berlin, Cell Projects, London. Group exhibitions include Leeds Art Gallery, touring UK venues, Tate Britain, London and Bielefelder Kunstverein, Kunstverein Nürnberg.
