Tools for resistance and revolution are all created in clay for Rose Eken’s immersive new exhibition Resistance. 

The fragile nature of the ceramic artefacts corresponds to the often frail structure of rebellion. 

Rose Eken’s point of departure for the exhibition is her own past involvement in the activist milieu around the former youth house on Jagtvej 69 in Copenhagen. Many of the objects in the exhibition are created from memories of the legendary house. From the lemons used as an antidote for teargas, to the various foods consumed before and after concerts and demonstrations, flyers, helmets and protest gear. Other ceramic artefacts in Resistance are inspired by Eken’s extensive research into past and current counter cultures around the world, from the Danish BZ movement to Occupy Wall Street. 

After research is done, Eken works from memory. Sculpting, burning, glazing, burning objects to recollect her ideas.

Sculpting in clay is a messy process filled with human imperfections and as a result Eken’s works are often closer to our idea of an object, than the actual object. Her artworks are imbued with a subtle humanity that instantly connects. 

Resistance is not an overtly political exhibition. It is not a sad song for a lost time and revolution. It raises questions concerning our current post truth neoliberal era. The dilemma of gradually accepting status quo and the comfort of lukewarm social media quicksand. It is a poetic reminder, that resistance may be fragile, but never futile. Sometimes it just takes one bolt and a slingshot. 

Rose Eken (b. 1976) lives and works in Copenhagen. Eken is currently part of the exhibition No Man is an Island at ARoS Museum, Aarhus, Denmark. She has recently exhibited at MOCA, Tuscon, USA and Transformer Gallery, Washington D.C, USA. A large-scale site specific outdoor installation at Ragnarock Museum, Roskilde, Denmark will be inaugurated this summer. Her work is featured in the new Phaidon book Vitamin C – Clay and Ceramic in Contemporary Art. A new monograph – Artefacts 2012-2018 – will be published by Book Lab and released in conjunction with the exhibition, with a book signing and artist talk with art critic and writer Maria Kjær Themsen, on Wednesday May 2, 2018. 

A catalogue documenting the exhibition and work process will also be available. Resistance is Rose Eken’s fourth exhibition with V1 Gallery.
