Magali Reus: A Sentence in Soil

Nasher Sculpture Center

On view until September 11, A Sentence in Soil is the second major U.S. show of Netherlands-born, London-based artist Magali Reus. The installation of new work “examines how the forms of simple, recognizable objects can generate an immediate chain of associations when dislocated from their original functions.” Reus’ sculptures are often inspired by a common object like a ladder or lock, and explore the conflict between confinement and openness.
