Magali Reus: As Mist, Description




London-based Dutch artist Magali Reus’s first major institutional solo exhibition in London comprises an entirely new body of work, framed by architectural interventions designed specifically for the South London Gallery’s main space. Reus’s interest in material as evidence of process is articulated in interlinked series of sculptures through the use of complex casting, moulding and weaving techniques, pitting the aggressive emptiness of manufacture against the slow diligence of handwork.

Commissioned and produced by Bergen Kunsthall and the South London Gallery.
