De Kunstenaars

"La Gioia" october - december 2014 

Born in 1962 in Mexico. Lives and works in New York, Paris and Mexico City.

With a truly diversified body of work, Gabriel Orozco employs urban landscapes and ordinary objects to twist conventional notions of reality and engage the imagination of the viewer. He creates surprising and often humorous scenarios from simple, quotidian means. Moving freely and fluently among different media like sculpture, photography, painting and video, he deliberately blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment, providing new ways to look at the seemingly familiar.
