V1 Gallery and Eighteen congratulates Rose Eken on her solo exhibition AFTERBEAT at Horsens Art Museum, Denmark. Please join us for the opening reception Saturday September 15 from 2 – 4 pm.

AFTERBEAT is Rose Eken’s first solo exhibition at Horsens Art Museum.

The show presents a new body of works exploring the cultural significance and aura around rock music. Encompassing two-dimensional tinsel oil paintings, ceramic objects and embroidery, AFTERBEAT expands on Rose Eken’s repertoire. From the meticulously recreated remains of a concert: trashed beer cans, plastic cups and cigarette butts – all in ceramic – to a new series of embroidered drum skins that index the strokes and knocks of famous drummers, Eken engages materials as well as diverging modes of representation in a free play between abstraction and concreteness. The exhibition continues through January 13. 2019
