Resumen del Libro
If the art world had playoffs, Gabriel Orozco might be the Duchampion of the world. His interactive, conceptual investigations into games convert common objects like Ping-Pong and billiard tables into fields of dreamy speculation. Like Marcel Duchamp, reexamining our experience of the world through the familiar objects around us, newly aestheticized. Indeed, Orozco has insisted that reality is his medium (rather than the photography, installation and sculpture which he produces). This catalogue for an exhibition at Madrids Palacio de Cristal displays Orozcos fascination with games, as in his Ping Pond Table, a four-sided table-tennis platform with a lily pond in the middle, and his Atomistsseries, in which geometric patterns partly cover wildly animated photographs of sports figures.
