Pablo Uribe works with signs. The central axis of his practice is the "system" of art itself: history, the museum, collections, expository techniques, authorship, the original and the copy. It seeks to generate space for an active spectator, receiver of multiple references and crossed appointments set in motion through simple assembly operations. He works his projects in different media such as video installation, editing, and "site specific" interventions.
Live and work in Uruguay.

He participated in several workshops, among which stand out: Urban Interventions, directed by Antoni Muntadas; Theory of the image, by Vincent Delpeux; Video workshop, dictated by Marcel Odenbach; and from the clinic Field report, by Justo Pastor Mellado.
