Period & Style
Exclusive Episode #029: Gabriel Orozco discusses the process behind his sculpture "Mobile Matrix" (2006), a permanent installation for the José Vasconcelos Library in Mexico City. Gabriel Orozcos sculptures and photographs disrupt conventional notions of reality. Drawing our attention to slips in logic, philosophical games, and hidden geometries, Orozco uncovers the extraordinary aspects of the seemingly everyday. His use of humble materials and means (graphite on bone, a ball of clay, a 35mm camera) engages the imagination through its disarming simplicity and intimacy.
