Luis Úrculo

Lives and works between Madrid and Mexico City

His practice takes anthropology, archeology and criminology as a main references of phenomenology to create lines of investigation based on reconstructions, timelines, interpretations, uncertain materialities, imprecise descriptions, or ambiguities.

Fiction, and representation of diverse domestic geographies have been the language and scenarios used to create diverse video works, using amateur choreographies with objects to represent this ideas.

His latest investigations are based on the idea of ‘karaoke’,
(or working with absence of information), to create new bodies of work within those missing parts, images or explanations. Perform a line of complicity with the viewer, who builds interpretations or reconstructions out of this pieces, as tourists, archeologist, or simple karaoke singers in a bar.

Urculo is also interested on a redefinition of the possible tools, procedures and formats within architecture. Mainly is an investigation focused on the representation and the narrative of the ‘invisible’ that defines the space. A work not so directly related with the gravity and weight, a value which has been a main unit to measure construction and its media impact on the last decades.
