exhibition of embroidery and glazed ceramic sculpture. “Rose Eken’s art is about rock music. An eclectic genre that is both raw and embracing. There is nothing as emotive as music – both to the individual and the collective, music has a unique ability to evoke the most charged of human emotions: love, hatred, intimacy, injustice – and good old-fashioned Weltschmerz. But rock culture also delineates a story of rebellion, revolution and revolt against the sexually repressed bourgeois culture. All of these traits can be found in Eken’s artwork; the wild uncontrolled nerve of rock ’n’ roll subtly curbed by a sensible disposition. Yet what appears restrained and controlled retains a ring of the fierce and the savage” - Maria Kjær Themsen
