Magali Reus (b. 1981, The Hague, Netherlands) is based in London.
In her sculpture Reus draws on the unassuming details of everyday life, from domestic and crafted objects to the aesthetics of functionality and industrial design.
Using casting, moulding, airbrushing and other fabrication techniques to create her precisely rendered forms, the familiar is made uncanny through Reus’ material manipulations and shifts in scale.
Her work revels in the messy residues of human activity and the clinical precision of mass-production, via references to the history of 20th century abstract sculpture.
‘I’m interested in how such a simple form can generate an immediate chain of associations – people, places, smells, sounds.’
