Lifted Gaze

Pedro Cabrita Reis

Solo exhibition

6 April – 22 June 2014
Vleeshal (Map)

Curator: Lorenzo Benedetti

Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis has created a major installation especially for the Vleeshal which engages in a dialogue with the historical architecture of the building. His work establishes a relationship between space, architecture and memory. With the title Lifted Gaze, the artist wants to express how his work can be viewed. In his work, Reis often uses construction materials such as brick and iron. In De Vleeshal he has created an installation with which he aims to strike a balance between a monumental dimension and a fragile, poetic dimension of the material and space. On the occasion of the exhibition, the book Pedro Cabrita Reis, Lifted Gaze will be published. It is a joint publication of the Vleeshal and MER. Paper Kunsthalle.
