Dutch-born, London-based artist Magali Reus (born 1981) is one of the most acclaimed new voices in contemporary sculpture. Published for her exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, this is the first monograph on her work. It features her recent series (Parking, Lukes, Dregs, In Place Of and Leaves) and new sculptures created for the Stedelijk, plus an interview with Reus by curators Leontine Coelewij and Andrew Bonacina, and contributions by Stedelijk director Beatrix Ruf, artist Liam Gillick, art critic Kirsty Bell and writer Andrew Durbin. Renowned for her interest in the relationship between mass-produced objects such as fridges, padlocks and seating, and the human body in the context of today’s digital society, Reus draws on a vast range of influences and references, from the domestic to the industrial.
