Among his last numerous productions on these disciplines, it should be noted the Kinetic Pictures for the video art masterpiece Dye a V(east) (2006-07) and Domesticated Domestic Demons (2011-12), a 7-channel video-installation recently exhibit at the DAFT Festival in Taipei, Taiwan (2012); the sound sculpture cd work Instorments; or his book "The encapsulated image: Video Art as a spiral," (2009), an essay on the contemporaneity of this artistic discipline.
His video-art works, for which he also composed the soundtracks, as well as his live perfomances, involves a multimedia stage set which, in addition to different image treatments, makes the most of interactive and sensorial immersion technology.
He showed his video-art pieces and played at many venues and events such as Ars Electrónica, Art Futura, ISEA, SONAR, Video Festival Videoformes, Festival of New Musics of Madrid and Sevilla; the experimental cycle LEM in Barcelona; the Knitting Factory in New York; the Pop Komm Festival or the Festival Experimenta in Madrid.
On May 2013 the 2nd Izmir Art Biennial in Turkey invited him as an official artist, where the jury awarded him with the prize for the best Video Art installation.
On the other side of his creative facet, we can point out his task as producer and director from 2008 of the weekly television program Transfera, specialized in the broadcast of audiovisual art, as well as the directiom, curatorship and programming of MADATAC, the INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY AUDIO-VISUAL & NEW MEDIA ART, and independent project initiated on 2009.
During 2013 he was invited as a jury member of Videoformes Fest (France) and MAshRome Film Fest (Italy), and EXIS Experimental Festival (Seoul, South Korea).
MADATAC is an independent and non-profit springboard, with an cultural diversity approach for cutting edge experimental and new media audio-visual culture, that particularly values innovation, originality and risk-taking art projects.
This unique and leading international event take 's place in Madrid (Spain) each December within the city Mile of Art, with daily screenings of video art; competitive sections; exhibitions of interactive video installations; open discussions with artists; seminars, lectures and round-table debates related to art, beauty and technology; audio-visual performances; workshops; think-thank forums; video art auctions and multiple awards.
MADATAC aims to take the pulse on what is new in the international ever-changing environment and on each edition put forward an attention-grabbing and inspirational theme. This special selection for N-Minutes Video Art Festival presents a caustic, peculiar, critical and enticing tribute to “flesh-video” projects produced by Spanish audio visual artists, where oneiric and verity visions, oriented by animated grids, plateaus or intangible signs, collide with intense organic textures and are expanded towards heterogeneous ways of watching unveiled body landscapes and forgotten emotions.

作为一位跨界艺术家，尤里.勒赫在过去的三十年间积极投身于音乐、影像艺术和文学创作领域，同时还是西班牙电子影像艺术领域中少数在音乐表演中启用视觉效果的先锋人物。他那开放而不拘一格的风格中透出先锋派的影子，随着紧密的视听冲击而来的是流动的催眠氛围和对经验主义的另类思索。他最新的此类作品包括：V印染（2006-07, Kinetic Pictures）、降妖伏魔（2011-12, 7通道录像装置，12年在台北展出于“数字艺术、电影及电视艺术节”）、乐器（有声雕塑作品），以及他的著作《密封的影像：螺旋状的视觉艺术》（发表于2009，关于他所处的艺术流派的当代性）。
2013年他受邀作为法国Videoformes影像艺术节、罗马Mash电影节和韩国EXIS Exprimental 艺术节评委。
Iury Lech is a trans-disciplinary creator that has developed his creativity working the last 30 years within the realm of music, video-art and literature, being part of the few pioneers in the Spanish electronic audio-visual scene that began to use visuals on their sound performances. His open and unclassifiable style permeates the tired avant-garde concept by means of a dense audiovisual texture that brings lively hypnotic atmospheres and an alternative way to conceive experimentalism.
