Martijn Hendriks
Martijn Hendriks’s practice appears to pull us in two opposite directions - on the one hand it draws on the art historical legacies of abstraction and the highly concentrated formal vocabulary and reductive approach of minimalism. On the other hand it brings these legacies into a process of continuous reconfiguration that explores their possibilities in relation to the permanently destabilised state of contemporary images and objects. It unfolds as a state in which value, meaning and context are constantly shifting and in which our notions of the art object, its historical value, its monumentality and permanence are structurally altered.

Magali Reus
The work of Magali Reus consists of objects, installations and video, often interrelated and cross-referential. It shows an interest in formal sculptural qualities (such as color, form, surface and spaciality) and in potential social and cultural meanings captured within the used materials and forms. Abstract visual elements remind of the artistic language of minimal sculpture, while the usage of 'recognisable' forms suspend a merely formal reading of the work.

For the exhibition at Walden Affairs, both Martijn Hendriks and Magali Reus will show new work especially made for the occasion.
