Gabriel Orozco works with materials, forms, and situations of everyday life through sculpture, photography, drawing, and installations. He changes forms and the function of things, believing that everything is in natural motion and can become something else. His solo exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz brings together familiar works such as Dark Wave, his intervention in an enormous whale skeleton, and a comprehensive collection of his ongoing work in terracotta.
The exhibition also includes examples of his most recent works, such as carved river stones and some new works developed especially for the Kunsthaus Bregenz. Internationally renowned curators and authors Jean-Pierre Criqui, Pablo Soler Frost, María Minera, and André Rottmann examine the inner aspects of Orozco’s oeuvre as well as the various media and formats with which he works. In his essay, Yilmaz Dziewior sheds light on the conceptual background to the exhibition in particular.
