Gabriel Orozco at Galerie Chantal Crousel

[press release]

Gabriel Orozco’s sixth solo exhibition at Galerie Chantal Crousel will present new works produced between Mexico City and Bali.

Paintings, graphite on canvas works, and sculptures carved in Balinese limestone will resonate with the Fleurs Fantômes paintings produced on the occasion of his residency at Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire in 2014 responding to the architecture of its castle.

Gabriel Orozco draws his inspiration from the many places he has visited and lived in and puts forth a body of works translating a graphic turning point in his practice—highlighting the regions he inhabits and which inhabit him. Constantly on the move, the artist establishes a dialogue between here and otherworldliness, geometry and fluidity, memory and transcendence.

Gabriel Orozco

Born in 1962 in Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, Gabriel Orozco lives and works between Paris, Mexico City and New York. Presented for the first time in Paris by Galerie Chantal Crousel (1993) with his iconic Citroën DS, Gabriel Orozco emerged as one of the most important artists of his generation. His work is characterized by a strong interest in the urban landscape and the human body. The boundaries between the art object and the  everyday environment are deliberately blurred, art and reality deliberately mixed. In  2017, Gabriel Orozco has been invited by Christine Macel to participate in VIVA ARTE VIVA for the 57th Biennale di Venezia. His work has been exhibited in numerous institutions: South London Gallery, UK (2016); Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama, Japan (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Japan (2015); Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, France (2015). Between 2009 and 2011, his work was presented on the occasion of his midcareer exhibition which traveled to Museum of Modern Art, NY; National Museum of Modern Art – Center Pompidou, Paris ; Tate Modern, London ; and Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland.
