Veit Stratmann’s is an internationally renowned artist, who has made important contributions through a practice concerned with the political and socio-cultural questioning of public and private space since the early 1990s.

Stratmann’s first exhibition in Lisbon since his show at the Serralves Museum in Porto in 2007 involves a radical intervention in the exhibition space of the Lumiar Cité, where the artist’s conceptually driven choices have led to unpredictable as well as surprising (re)encounters with the gallery space and its urban surroundings. In doing so, Stratmann also references Lumiar Cité’s exhibition history, directing our attention to former interventions from artists that still define the gallery’s physical appearance today.

The transparency of the gallery’s glass façade – one of its main features – and the concomitant social-cultural promise derived from the history of modern architecture, are questioned by the artist’s precise minimalist work. Using the standard measures of doorways and entry and exit points, Stratmann’s interventions on the glass reflect on the gallery’s inside and outside, turning it into a genuine public art project, with Lumiar Cité appearing like a pavilion in the eye of the beholder. This theatrical gesture turns Lumiar Cité and its surroundings into a stage and its visitors into the protagonists of a play.

Veit Stratmann (1960) lives and works in Paris (France). He teaches at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Lyon (France). His work was shown at the Museum Folkwang (Essen, Germany), the Serralves Foundation (Porto, Portugal), the Miró Foundation (Barcelona, Spain), the Kunstmuseum Basel (Switzerland), the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris (France), the Project Art Centre (Dublin, Ireland), the Taedok Science Town (Taejon, South Korea) and other venues worldwide.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
