Poetic Topography
Gabriel Orozco’s Asterisms Now at the Guggenheim New York

For his project Asterisms Gabriel Orozco collected thousands of objects. These objects, retrieved from the shores of a natural reserve in Mexico and a playing field in New York, form the core of the 18th and final commissioned work for the Deutsche Guggenheim. Orozco assembled them into complex installations that can be read both as a criticism of civilization and a poetic topography. The installations are accompanied by large-scale gridded photographs of the individual objects, organized typologically by material, color, size. In the framework of the "Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim" Asterisms is now on view in New York.
Asterisms is the fifth exhibition in the "Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim" presenting commissioned works created for Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, as well as thematic shows for the Berlin and New York Guggenheim Museum. The series began in 2009 with Anish Kapoor’s spectacular sculpture Memory. The mammoth object is a milestone in Kapoor’s career and maintains an ambiguous position between sculpture and architecture. The series was continued with Julie Mehretu’s Grey Area, In these paintings the New York artist investigates urban space, war, destruction, and not least her impressions of Berlin. In the framework of the  "Deutsche Bank Series" the New York Guggenheim Museum also presented the group shows Found in Translation and Being Singular Plural. The exhibition united a group of artists who represent some of the most innovative  voices in the field of contemporary Indian art today.
