 Pedro Cabrita Reis: True Gardens #6, Kunsthaus Graz, Graz, Austria, MINUS SPACE, Brooklyn

February 2 — May 18, 2008

Pedro Cabrita Reis’ works consist of commonplace surroundings, construction materials and architectural semantic appropriated from an existing reality and miraculously transformed into altars of an almost spiritual experience. Practicing his alchemy of the everyday, the artist turns the familiar into sublime, the trivial into a precious and valuable, achieving the noble levels of human perception, emotion and appreciation of the world.
