The solo exhibition of Magali Reus shows new sculptures created especially for this exhibition. Using new high-tech techniques and ‘clean’ materials, and for her interest in mass-produced products and everyday architecture in the world around us, Reus is one of the most notable exponents of contemporary sculpture. Although her sculptures may often appear remote and industrial, they actually refer to physical actions that taint, pollute or even pervert the pristine, smooth surfaces. One of the core themes running throughout Reus’ oeuvre is the relationship between mass-produced articles and the human body in the context of today’s digital society.
