IMG_9269Walking down the long white corridor in the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Italy it is hard not to miss the large locks mounted on the wall. These locks are broken and their sides are opened allowing you to see the interior mechanics. These larger than life objects are not real locks. Unlike the ready made artists such as Duchamp, Dutch artist Magali Reus uses other materials to create objects that look like everyday, mundane objects such as locks, dishes and hangers. Clever? You tell me.
