Remain in Light
October 3 – November 2, 2014
OPENING: Friday, October 3rd from 6-9pm
The Hole is proud to present the first US solo exhibition by Danish artist Rose Eken. For the exhibition Eken will exhibit a forensic assortment of hand-painted ceramics arranged by size on the floor of Gallery 3 and three large tapestries on the walls. The sculptures will include all the objects one might find in a punk venue, perhaps even our former across-the-street neighbor here on the Bowery, CBGBs. From microphone stands all the way down to tiny bottle caps and guitar pics, these handmade and hand-painted objects will create a personalized memorial to NYC’s dwindling lawless zones and the mayhem they contained. Their anthropological arrangement on the floor suggests a methodical and scientific approach to categorizing and analyzing a lost culture, as though a forensic dig of the venue unearthed these strange relics.
