Daniel Urria (DE 1976) lives and works in Berlin. He studied fine arts in Santiago de Chile and experimental media in Berlin where he resides since 2003. His work deals with spaces and situations that gain an hermetic quality through constant repetition. A tautological strategy that gives the images an often desolated appeal.

Getting it (over with) (2006) A young woman lies naked on top of a platform, looking down to a pack of dogs. Some of them try to get to the woman, jumping. Due to the shortness of the sequence and its repetition, it creates tension and the loop seems hermetic. The view of the naked passive woman and the aggressive animals plays with the cliché of the vital sexual energy of the dogs that try to reach the lascivious woman that presents her body as an Odalisque. PRODUCER UdK Berlin

Maiden Voyage (2003) A woman on a bridge watches endless trains go by. A subtle intervention within the moving image and a reflection on time. CAST Catalina Rössle

Botánica (2003) A prolific thicket of botanical drawings is the beginning and end for a masked man that walks through a soft, hermetic and constantly mutating nature, dissolving in it. Allusion is made to the baroque dimension of the park as a stage: venue for games and transformations. PRODUCER Udk Berlin

Tropische Fische (2008) is the illusion of a loop, a film sequence of apparent repetitions that are variations of the same scene. A couple visits an Aquarium. They get lost within the forking paths and find each other again. Ten repetitions with different takes of the same action, ten times for the viewer to gain new insights of the occurring.
