GABRIEL OROZCO: PHOTOGRAVITY
By Gabriel Orozco
Afterward by Ann Temkin
In 1993, Gabriel Orozco removed a lengthwise section of an Citron DS and reconnected the two sides, making the car's fleet form look lighter yet. Orozco continues his experimentations with perceptions of gravity and weight in Photogravity, an installation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Here, photographs of pre-Columbian sculptures from the museum's Louise and Walter Arensberg Collection share gallery space with photographs of Orozco's own pieces. Homogenizing and juxtaposing photography and sculpture, each endowed with properties of the other, Orozco creates unexpected visual relationships, and invites dialogue between the two mediums. Published on the occasion of the exhibition in Philadelphia, this book presents the visually unexpected, creating a colorful combination of writings and collages from the aritst's notebooks, his photographs and sculptures, and the Arensberg's pre-Columbian works.
Gabriel Orozco was born in Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, in 1962. Major exhibitions of his work include Empty Club (London), Free Market is Anti-Democratic (New York), as well as a show at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1998.
