The second issue of Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco's artist's book/magazine GOZNE eschews the static energy of a strict artist's book and instead functions as a vivid periodic compendium of collaborations, discussions and representations presented as distinct portfolios by the artists, architects, writers, fashion designers and theorists who are invited to contribute and collaborate each issue. Instead of simply highlighting a contributor's work, it peeks through their archives, elucidates their thoughts and discloses their working materials. Nomadic in his life, always shifting in his practice, Gabriel Orozco is an artist who defies categorization. Working variously in sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, collage, painting, and video, he creates an art that is as diverse as the myriad issues it explores. Lyrical yet mundane, poetic yet commonplace, his works range from humble found and readymade objects to carefully constructed sculptures, large-scale installations, and finely crafted terracottas. Orozco lives and works in New York, where he is represented by Marian Goodman Gallery.
