"Sex, Money and Power" january - march 2013

Born in 1979 in Cuba. Lives and works in Mexico City.

Ariel Orozco is known for using the city and its inhabitants as a setting of his practice as well as for creating complex and challenging works of art with virtually nothing. Political and social by nature, his work largely consists of performing little actions and interventions, which he methodically documents in photographs, videos or installations. Through Orozco acute observation of daily activities, he allows the viewer to reflect upon social processes, interactions between individuals and their political context, or upon the artistic creation itself.
