Gabriel Orozco (b. 1962, Mexico) is one of the founding figures of Mexican contemporary art. Orozco’s art offers new ways of observing the familiar and mundane, using material, programmatic and formal manipulations of objects and images, all done with humour and inventiveness. Orozco is interested in minor changes, sometimes even only of slight points of views, movements or gestures. These lend his works their particular charm. That said, Orozco refuses to be categorized and stays firmly on the fringes of western art. Orozco has exhibited his works at Documenta, the Venice Biennial, and many leading public art spaces worldwide.
