La galerie de la Biennale

Reis was immediately struck by La Sucrière’s odd pergola, a geometrical ruin which is, in fact, the remains of an office block once used by the Biennale. A blend of the ridiculous and the elegant, the pergola offers load-bearing columns and walls "redesigned" by the artist with areas of ochre and industrial neon lighting: these simultaneously emphasise and mask the structure’s internal volumes, while also making play with the effect of day/night alternation on its ambience. Cabrita Reis is also showing the site-specific work " The Sleepers " in the Bichat Warehouse.
