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…”

In October 2017, mother’s tankstation opened its London gallery with, context, collapse, a second solo exhibition by Yuri Pattison.The artist’s first solo exhibition with mother’s tankstation, sunset provision, opened in November 2016. Pattison’s recent solo exhibitions include Trusted Traveller, Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland and citizens of nowhere, Kevin Space, Vienna (both 2017). He is one of four artists comissioned to make new work for the inaugural exhibition at ICA Miami, and is included STILL HUMAN, a concurrent exhibition at the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Arts Foundation, Miami, in December 2017. Earlier in 2017, 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, 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, 2016.
