Rose Eken on inspirationJOURNALRead more
Part of Rose Eken’s work includes recreating some of the rubbish that we as a society leave lying around - empty bottles, cigarette butts, junk food - in glazed ceramics. However, the Danish artist, born in 1976, always makes sure to add a shift or a twist to the recognisable world, whether she works in ceramics or embroidery, miniature, drawing or video installation.
Rose Eken (born 1976) graduated from the Royal College of Art in London (Master of Arts, 2003) and has lived and worked in London, Berlin, New York, and Copenhagen. Her work is inspired by music and fan culture, and she often explores darkness as a colour tone as well as existential phenomena. She is known for her ceramic installations and miniature sculptures of everyday objects but works across several medias.
Rose Eken has left her mark on a classic Mads Nørgaard t-shirt. The front features the poisonous Deadly Nightshade plant associated with witchcraft, while the back features Rose Eken’s signature in large font. Rose Eken’s work tends to focus on darkness as a colour tone and as an existential phenomena.
