Magali Reus: Particle of Inch Catalogue

  • Sale
  • Regular price £20.00


In the spring of 2015, Magali Reus (b. 1981, the Hague, the Netherlands; based in London) opened the first in a series of four exhibitions of new work co-commissioned and presented by SculptureCenter, New York; The Hepworth Wakefield, England; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, Germany; and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy. The culmination of these collaborative projects is documented in this publication, marking an important chapter in the evolution of Reus’s work.

As Andrew Bonacina writes in his essay, “Magali Reus has evolved a practice that requires a constant examination of how we engage with, and understand, the everyday items that accompany us in the world—the ‘supporting-cast’ objects that we rely on but rarely acknowledge. Relieved of their functionality through Reus’s re-transcriptions—rendered as useless as a mug without a bottom or a book sealed in plastic—their newfound role as sculpture forces them to articulate their objecthood in alternative ways, through attitude or gesture. They become vessels waiting to be filled by the viewer’s own physical and emotional relationship to them. Operating somewhere between uniformity and personalization, Reus’s sculptures become spaces in which objects are finding their place, where things are working themselves out.”
