A painter, sculptor, and photographer, Gabriel Orozco is known for re-framing everyday objects and exploring the boundary between public and private spheres. Using photography to capture an otherwise ephemeral moment, the artist produces small-sized pictures that depict otherwise unnoticeable details of daily life, albeit with a poetic twist.

While some may simply be “readymade”, other situations are the result of an intervention of the artist, who inserts an object or re-assembles found elements to then photograph the resulting condition. The titles of each of the nine photographs in this series provide a humorous interpretation of the captured scenes—whether staged or not.
