Description One of the most significant Portuguese artists alive today, Pedro Cabrita Reis has produced a complex oeuvre encompassing a variety of media. His paintings, sculptures, and site-specific installations are primarily composed of found and manufactured objects. Often employing common, simple materials, his work touches on issues of space, architecture, and memory, with a suggestive power of association that goes beyond the visual to the level of metaphor. Bringing together the viewer's subjective conscience with the greater conscience of everyday life, Cabrita Reis's artworks induce a reconstruction of individual and collective memory, creating an expansion of meaning and proposing a literal and figurative reconstruction of the world. This lavishly illustrated publication provides a comprehensive overview of the artist's work from the mid-80s to the present, and includes writings by the artist as well as bibliography and thumbnail catalogue raisonné.
