Nasher Sculpture Center presents Sightings: Magali Reus closing day
The Nasher Sculpture Center will present Sightings: Magali Reus. The exhibition will be the second major U.S. show for the Dutch-born, London-based artist.
The meticulously rendered sculptures of Magali Reus often find their inspiration in a readily overlooked everyday object, a dehumidifier, a no-parking sign, a ladder, removing it from its original, useful purpose and transmuting it into a form open to a wide-ranging accrual of new identities, meanings, and associations. Her thoughtful interrogations of the metaphorical play between such objects and our own bodies can generate a dreamlike logic providing insights into the often disjointed character of contemporary life, where we may accord greater attention to the digital realm than our actual surroundings and where the production, distribution, and consumption of objects become processes that are frequently obscured, isolated, and alienated from one another.
