Dutch artist Magali Reus will create a new body of work to be exhibited at The Hepworth Wakefield’s new 600sqm contemporary art space The Calder.


The exhibition is co-commissioned by The Hepworth Wakefield, SculptureCenter, NYWestfälischer Kunstverein in Münster, Germany, and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Italy. The exhibition will be Reus' first solo exhibition in a UK institution.

In recent works Reus has used recognisable everyday objects as frameworks for exploring the languages of material and colour. In this new series of works, Reus focuses on the curb as an architectural motif, using elements such as manhole covers, pavement cracks and graffiti as starting points for new sculptural forms. Reus’ emerging practice focuses on material form and presence, offering a new take on these key tenets of sculpture.

Reus will also be exhibiting as part of British Art Show 8, opening at Leeds City Art Gallery on Friday 9 October 2015 and touring to Edinburgh, Norwich and Southampton.

Supported by Mondriaan Fund, Dutch Embassy in the UK, The Approach and Freymond Guth Fine Arts.
