Pedro Cabrita Reis
South Wing by Pedro Cabrita Reis is an installation consisting of materials from places formerly inhabited. You don't know where the doors come from, they could be from a private home, a prison, an asylum or a social housing. South wing is about exclusion, rejection, being outcast.
When we look at it we get an oppressive feeling as there are so many doors but wherever they may come from, now they lead nowhere.
The door for us is not only a possibility to go in somewhere but also a barrier that can prevent you from going in or getting out of somewhere.
Especially because it is so long (12 meters) the installation is very impressive and stands in the hall like a barrier.
