Gabriel Orozco made his name in the early 1990's as one of the most important artists of his generation. Moving constantly, with no fixed studio, he refuses to be identified with nations or regions, and draws his inspiration from the different places where he lives and travels. His work is characterised by a lively interest in the elements of the urban landscape and the human body. His work is fed by the humdrum incidents of daily life, with their poetry of randomness and paradox. The boundaries between the objet d'art and the workaday environment are deliberately blurred, art and reality deliberately mixed. Movement, expansion, circularity, dialogue between the geometrical and the organic, have marked his ongoing visual quest for over twenty years. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover an exceptional collection of his drawings, photographs, sculptures and paintings, most of which have never been shown in France.
