Gabriel Orozco
by Gabriel Orozco
Publisher's Description
Gabriel Orozco emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as one of the most intriguing and original artists of his generation, one of the last to come of age during the twentieth century. His work is unique in its formal power and intellectual rigor, resisting confinement to one medium and roaming freely and fluently among drawing, photography, sculpture, installation and painting. Orozco deliberately blurs the boundary between the art object and the everyday environment, situating his work in a place that merges art and reality, whether through exquisite drawings made on airplane boarding passes or sculptures composed of recovered trash. This publication examines two decades of the artist’s production year by year, from 1989 through 2009. Each section is richly illustrated and includes a short text, based on interviews with the artist, that combines biographical information with a brief and focused discussion of selected works. Critical essays by Ann Temkin, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh and Briony Fer supplement these foundational and chronological explorations, providing new insights and strategies for grounding Orozco’s work in the larger landscape of contemporary art production.
