About

Perrotin is proud to present One Law for The Lion & Ox is Oppression, Gabriel Rico’s debut exhibition in New York and first solo show with the gallery.

With a post-Surrealist/Arte Povera approach, artist Gabriel Rico’s latest body of work mines a range of materials, from taxidermy animals to neon
shapes and found natural objects, that together create environments addressing the relationship between nature, architecture and the future ruins
of civilization. Looking at the behaviors and survival techniques of animals, like the Golden pheasant, he creates settings that reveal complexities of
the current human condition. The juxtaposition of diverse life forms infuse the objects with a humor and irony, reflective of the common struggle to
attain equilibrium amidst the everyday challenges of life.

The title of the exhibition derives from the final line of William Blake’s visionary text, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. “One law for the lion and ox is oppression,” can be considered as the confinement of energy by the law of reason that in return would destroy energy, and therefore existence. Blake insists there is no single law, no moral absolute, by which man is governed, which brings into question whether animals reveal something about culture and what it means to be human?

Looking back to a time when man was believed to be the master of nature, Rico investigates historical technologies seen during the peak of the Age of Reason. He distills geometric shapes that correspond to this period when the applied life sciences began to rely on mathematics to quantize nature in order to understand, dominate, and ultimately attempt to conquer it.
