Magali Reus: A Sentence in Soil

7 May 2022

The Dutch-born, London-based sculptor reworks everyday, mass-produced objects to give them new meanings. In this solo show at the Nasher Sculpture Center (14 May–11 September), Reus will produce two new groups of works teasing out the tensions between nature and the manmade world. Turning her attention to exit signs and fruit baskets, Reus’s works incorporate elements of digital design, casting, moulding and 3D printing to change how we see these common objects when they have been taken out of their usual contexts.
