Fallen and Standing
Pedro Cabrita Reis is one of the most prominent Portuguese artists of today. Among other venues, his works have been presented in the Documenta IX, at the 50th and the 55th Venice Biennale.
Cabrita Reis’s oeuvre is strongly defined by his origins and his surroundings. At the same time, he concerns himself again and again with fundamental issues of art, for example the concepts of painting and sculpture or drawing in space with sculptural mediums. In his work he breaks all the formal rules and artistic conventions, reinterpreting abstract forms and often, as if by magic, converting them into enigmatic objects.
