Pedro Cabrita Reis: a remote whisper
Official Collateral Event of the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
29 May – 24 Nov, 2013
Palazzo Falier, San Marco
“a remote whisper” is an extraordinary piece by world renowned Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis, specifically produced for the occasion of the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. The artist installed in the 700 sqm piano nobile of Palazzo Falier a monumental work that occupies the walls and floors of the exhibition site, inviting the viewer to engage in a path of random trajectories through the space, thus building an intricate perception of the piece. The exhibition, curated by Sabrina van der Ley, Director for Contemporary Art at the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, displays a semi-precarious, hand-made, construction that combines aluminum, glass, and fluorescent fixtures, drawings, paintings, and photos.
