Pedro Reyes

© Pedro Reyes

For his works, Pedro Reyes (b. 1972, lives and works in Mexico City) uses architecture, sculpture, video, performance, and participation to promote collective and individual power of action in political, social, ecological, and educational situations. His projects take place in the research field between a socially shaped understanding of architecture, the sensual and symbolic dimension of sculpture, and a decidedly political stance that adopts a radically humanist and Marxist position. At documenta 13 in 2012, for example, he presented the work Sanatorium, a first-aid pavilion for lifestyle diseases, such as stress or anxiety, which offered a variety of therapies based on shamanism, cognition research, and relationship counselling in a playful yet socially binding and unifying way. He was already represented at Museum Tinguely in 2016 in the exhibition «Prière de toucher - The Touch of Art» with the work Cuerpomático II (2015), a toolbox that presented sensual objects of touch.
