Chantal Crousel, Niklas Svennung 及桑塔画廊全体员工恭祝您新春快乐，阖家团圆，牛年大吉! Chantal Crousel, Niklas Svennung and the gallery team wish you a happy Chinese New Year!
We are thrilled to share with you the work Fleurs Fantômes 124 by Gabriel Orozco. In his fascination with the remnants of the old tapestries [of Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire] that once graced the walls of these rooms – closed off and forgotten about since 1938 – Gabriel Orozco devoted hours to studying the palimpsest of the floral tapestries, still hanging on these old walls, photographing them over a considerable amount of time whilst listening to the echoes of ages past. The works […] evoke the details and the damage of the ancient wallpaper, whose elegant floral motifs have been recreated using a unique, time-consuming process of spraying oil onto canvas. — Chantal Colleu-Dumond, Phantom Flowers, excerpt from Gabriel Orozco - Phantom Flowers, 2016, pages 4-5.
