Natural Motion – Gabriel Orozco

4.02 – 04.05 / 2014
Moderna Museet, Stockholm

Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco (Jalapa, 1962), who lives part time in New York, Paris and Mexico City, has just inaugurated the exhibition titled Natural Motion at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, his first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. It is a non-chronological contemporary survey of his work and the methods he relies on for his creations.
Presented earlier at the Kunsthaus in Bregenz (Austria) the exhibition is curated by Ann-Sofi Norin, Co-Director of the Moderna Museet. It includes new works like La DS Cornaline (2013), a replica of his Citroen DS construction exhibited for the first time in 1993 at Galerie Chantal Crousel, which represents him in Paris, as well as some of his most iconic productions, like the installation Dark Wave (2006), or his skeleton Black Kites (1997).
Worth mentioning among Orozco recent exhibitions are, first of all, an explosive tour that began in the end of 2009 at the MoMA in New York, and travelled to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, the Centre Pormpidou (Paris), the Tate Modern (London), and the Guggenheim Museums in Berlin and New York. This important cycle of exhibitions was followed by, in 2013, other solo shows like Thinking in Circles at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburg, and Chicotes, Orozco’s first exhibition in China at the Faurschou Foundation in Beijing.
