Sanatorium by Pedro Reyes
June 2–5 and 9–12, 2011
New Yorkers are notably fascinated with a variety of therapies that help them cope with their hectic schedules, demanding lifestyle choices, and often complicated relationships that the city stimulates. As a result, New York counts a disproportionate number of psychotherapists, self-improvement instructors, life coaches, and the like that host intriguing sessions in equally fascinating spaces around the city. In his temporary clinic, Sanatorium (installed as the first edition of stillspotting nyc in Brooklyn), artist Pedro Reyes combines the best of New York’s existing therapy landscape with unexpected, short, experimental treatments. In two-hour windows, Sanatorium visitors experience up to three sessions from a roster of sixteen special “urban therapies.” Upon arrival, visitors will meet a receptionist who will assign the “therapies.” Balancing reality and parody, Sanatorium draws from Gestalt psychology, theater warm-up exercises, Fluxus events, conflict resolution techniques, trust-building games, corporate coaching, psychodrama, and hypnosis. While some of the sessions should be experienced alone, others are specifically catered to couples and larger groups.

Living in a big city can be fun. There’s so much going on—lots of people, traffic, and things to do. But where can you go to get a break from all the activity? The Guggenheim Museum’s project stillspotting nyc has asked artists and architects to answer that question and to create “spots” for us to enjoy “stillness.”
In 2011 and 2012, stillspotting projects took place across New York. To get you thinking about stillspotting, try this activity.

The works of Pedro Reyes (b. 1972, Mexico City) traverse the worlds of art, design, film, architecture, social criticism, and pedagogy. Originally trained as an architect, Reyes often focuses on issues of scale and space while questioning pressing social issues through the stimulation of individual and collective interaction and reflection. Reyes utilizes strategies developed for communication or education, as well as common sense and everyday humor, to engage his audiences. In the early 2000s, he became known for his performance and video works. Since then, his work has occasionally taken on a more sculptural or architectural approach, as in the capulas (penetrable sculptures) that he created between 2001 and 2009. In one of his best-known works, Shovels from Pistols (Palas por Pistolas, 2008– ), Reyes collected 1,527 guns from an open call through Culiacán, one of Mexico’s most violent cities. These weapons were then remade into shovels to eventually plant an equal number of trees in cities around the world. Among his most recent works is Baby Marx (2009), a puppet show for television that lightheartedly but effectively addresses capitalist, socialist-economic, and cultural systems through the eyes of children, Karl Marx, and Adam Smith. Reyes’s work has been exhibited worldwide including the Venice Biennale, the Carpenter Center at Harvard University, the Serpentine Gallery in London, and the New Museum in New York.
