Gabriel Orozco

b. 1962, Jalapa, Mexico | live and work in Mexico City, New York, and Paris

Gabriel Orozco works in media including drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, and video. His principal subject is the fragile relationship of everyday objects to one another, and to human beings. Orozco has several works in the Guggenheim’s collection, and had a solo exhibition, Asterisms, at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, in 2012. In his most recent work acquired by the Guggenheim, Piñanona 1 (2013), Orozco abstracts a composition from a silhouette of the piñanona, a plant often found adorning Mexican homes.
