Out of Empty
Magali Reus approaches our present-day excessive visual culture by means of a minimalist form. Her sculptures are based on the architecture and aesthetics of transitional and corporate spaces and are cast into abstract and essential forms. At first sight they seem to arouse a sterile, inhuman effect while resonating with allusions and meaning. They occupy a place between the visual world of consumerism and abstraction, mass production and minimalism. As such Reus distills physical forms from the intangibility of capital flows and the ubiquity of objects providing its infrastructure.
