Mexican artist Pedro Reyes examines and resolves the complexities and contradictions of modern life in his work, which ranges from sculpture and tv to short film productions and public projects.


Continuing Reyes’s interest in ‘re-imagining’ and ‘democratising’ institutions, this publication accompanies the artist’s Sanatorium project (2011–15). Viewers are invited to become a participant in a ‘temporary clinic’ that offers therapies and short treatments developed by the artist.


Divided by colour and therapy, the publication includes over 50 images of the project, artist interviews and a guide for readers to create their own participatory works of art therapy.
