Originally from Mexico City, Gabriel Dawe creates site-specific installations that explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms. His work is centered in the exploration of textiles, aiming to examine the complicated construction of gender and identity in his native Mexico and attempting to subvert the notions of masculinity and machismo prevalent in the present day.
Gabriel’s installations are mathematical feats that explore the relationship between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter and connection. Gabriel’s site-specific installations are made up of thousands of different colored threads that create one sculpture. He has shown all over the world including Museum Rijswijk in the Netherlands, Conduit Gallery in Dallas, TX, the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and Newark Museum.
