SculptureCenter – Magali Reus
From May 3 until July 5 SculptureCenter in New York will present a new body of work co-commissioned by SculptureCenter, the Hepworth Wakefield in Yorkshire, UK, Westfälischer Kunstverein in Münster, Germany, and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Italy. Spring for a Ground will be Reus’ first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
A new series of smaller sculptural “lock” works expose a perversity of mechanical detail. Like archaeological markers, these works become enigmatic containers for a type of numerical shorthand that evades translation. A date or a time enlists structural responsibility, but as with the curbs, they create a perplexing collapse of boundaries, blurring the graphic and the emotional. The exhibition will be presented at The Hepworth Wakefield in the United Kingdom from 17 July.
SculptureCenter received from the Mondriaan Fund a Grant International Presentations.
