MACRO presents a new installation conceived for the Museum hall.
The idea of Cabrita Reis is realized through the assemblage of a series of steal beams; an imposing and dizzy frame (4x6x5 meters) leading the visitor in a manipulated environment, where steel and painted glass become the basic elements. All the beams fit together in a peculiar way. These different elements create a series of connotations that are both personal and historical-cultural. In his most recent works the artist uses industrial materials such as steel, aluminium, glass, neon, creating elementary geometric figures characterized by a continuous comparison between nature and artifice. The research of this Portuguese artist, first focused on Constructivism, has evolved towards the creation of incomplete or abandoned geometric structures, characterized by agglomerates of matter deprived of any function, which become a testimony to the dimension of contemporary chaos.
