Hernâni Reis Baptista

Hernâni Reis Baptista is a Portuguese multimedia artist whose work refers to the materiality of installation. Baptista’s installations follow in the legacy of such artists as Robert Morris and Helio Oiticica, and are frequently large­scale, site­specific digital or video works. These installations examine the area surrounding them, and question the cohabitation of object and space. Baptista’s found objects are integrated into the surrounding space, which allows the dissolution of boundary between the work and the arena which it is installed. Baptista’s digital installations are pointedly preoccupied with the ubiquity of imagery. Whether using stock photos attached to wooden armatures, or overlapping large­scale digital prints, Baptista uses these images to investigate notions of anonymity.


Baptista has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe, including Maus Hábitos, Espaço Campanhã, and the FUSO Annual de Video Arte Internacional de Lisboa in Portugal. Baptista was also the recipient of the 2011 Purchase Award from the School of Fine Arts at the Porto University.
