Since the early 1990s, the work of Pedro Cabrita Reis (born 1956) has revolved around the subjects of home and territory, in works based on tables and chairs, doors and windows. The “homelessness” of humanity is a constant of Cabrita Reis' concerns.

For the past two decades, Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis has deconstructed architectural, sculptural and painterly processes, formulating a unique body of abstract installations. This catalogue documents the True Gardens series and includes images of previous sites as well as installation views of the most recent iteration at Austria's Kunsthaus Graz.
Published by Hatje Cantz. Edited by Michael Tarantino. Essays by J. Fernandes and José M. Miranda Justo. Conversation with Pedro Cabrita Reis and Adrian Searle.
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-1980s to the present, and includes writings by the artist as well as bibliography and thumbnail catalogue raisonné.
