Born 1962, Jalapa, Mexico. Lives and works in Paris.
Gabriel Orozco made a name for himself in the 1990s with the diversity of his artistic approach, closely related to his nomadic lifestyle. He works as much in drawing as he does in photography and installation. As in his seminal work DS (1993), a car split lengthwise to reduce its volume by a third, he aims to slightly modify everyday objects, opening a dialogue between the observer and her environment
