about this work

Magali Reus’s sculptures are accumulations of images and things she draws on objects she finds around her, recombining them into something strange and unfamiliar. Although a keen observer of the physical world, Reus avoids using readymade objects, instead each element of her sculptural jigsaws has been meticulously fabricated using a mixture of technological and traditionally craft-based techniques. Colours, materials, textures, sizes, shapes are all manipulated, throwing everyday habits of association into disarray, inviting the viewer to question the way objects may take on or shed meanings.
