Born Dublin, 1986, lives and works in London.

Yuri Pattison is a tireless, natural thinker at the forefront of a group of emerging artists / intellectuals whose practices, in an inherently 21st century manner, are informed by a seamless merger of hard and soft realities. He works in sculpture and digital media, exploring the visual culture of digital economies and the natures of online/offline skill sharing. Typical, recent examples of his artworks thoughtfully list medium and/or displayed interior contents, as if listed by border security agents: “custom made perspex 1U format box, server PSU & switch, server case fans, AI: The Tumultuous History of the Search for Artificial Intelligence, by Daniel Crevier (book), PDLC switchable privacy film, cables, generic unpainted architectural 1:100 scale model figures, dust, sebum [an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands], digital timers, travel power adapter…”

Pattison’s third solo exhibition with mother’s tankstation, to-do, doing, done, opened in our London gallery in September 2019. Pattison will present his fourth solo exhibition at the gallery in Spring 2022 at our London gallery. Recent notable exhibitions include: One Escape at a Time, the 11th Seoul Mediacity Biennale, Seoul (2021); the engine, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (solo, 2020), Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future, Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2019), Trusted Traveller, Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland (solo, 2017) and citizens of nowhere, Kevin Space, Vienna (solo, 2017). In 2018, Pattison was awarded the Luma Arles Residency in France and in December 2017, he was one of four artists commissioned to make a new work for The Everywhere Studio, the inaugural exhibition at the ICA Miami. Earlier on that same year, an indicative installation was acquired by the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Yuri Pattison also holds considerable UK curatorial updraft, with a major work the ideal (v. 0.1) presented as part of British Art Show 8, 2015-2017, and he was the recipient of the 2016 Frieze Artist Award, culminating in a major new commission Insights (crisis trolley). The Weight of Data, Tate Britain, 2015, curated by Lizzie Carey Thomas, which also included a breakthrough video sculpture colocation, time displacement. His practice was the focus of the prestigious two-year CREATE residency at Chisenhale Gallery, London, which concluded with a major solo show, user, space, curated by Polly Staple in 2016. Pattison will be included in group exhibition Radical Landscapes at Tate Liverpool in Spring 2022.
