Yesterday I went to the Tate Modern to visit Gabriel Orozco’s exhibition. I thought I knew his research quite well upon entering the show, but I found myself surprised and amused more than expected. Orozco’s mix of lightness and depth is quite unique.
Unfortunately photographing was not permitted, so I’m posting some “found” pics of the works I enjoyed the most. If you happen to be around London, don’t miss it…
“The installation of Medusa outside the Versace store was to discuss the ownership of Medusa by the fashion house. A relationship between the single Versace mannequin within the store shopfront and Medusa also reflected the acceptance of what is beautiful and the outcasting of what is deemed ugly, by those that consider themselves an authority. Medusa with her shopping bags turned to stone by the very horror that is herself reflected in the use and ownership of an ancient icon to sell goods.”
