PICKING OVER THE BONES
by Jerry Saltz
Bob Dylan wrote that there are "maybe a thousand kings in the world," and for a time in the nineties, the Mexican-born artist Gabriel Orozco
was one of them. Orozco was a primal navigator -- a canny artist who effectively inspected the gap between physicality and immateriality, the micro and the macro, the industrial ready-made and everyday detritus. Few contemporary artists mined the space between the ordinary and the strange better than Orozco did.
