MAGALI REUS
Lives and works in London

Magali Reus’s work combines references to Land Art, modernism and exotic ornament. In your own time
(2007), made with beach towels, is the abstract panorama of an artificial place. Palm trees, sea and
formalism. Her installations, mainly realised in-situ, generate an atmosphere evoking business lobbies as
well as sea side shops. The landscapes depicted by the artist with a certain sense of humour also
function as a sort of visual Muzak or elevator music. Lulling the eyes of the viewer, her works can be
compared to a synthetic lapping of waves: the nostalgic impression of a coloured simulacrum.
