about this work
London-based Dutch artist Magali Reus’s interest in material as evidence of process is articulated in interlinked series of sculptures through the use of complex casting, moulding and weaving techniques, pitting the aggressive emptiness of manufacture against the slow diligence of handwork. This edition was commissioned to commemorate Reus’s first major institutional solo exhibition at South London Gallery, and is drawn directly from works within the exhibition.
about Magali Reus
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.
