Eske Rex – Works
Through the years, Eske Rex has developed a body of work where practices from architecture, art, design and craft are intertwined and unfolded within sculpture and installation. Despite their clear and ethereal expression, the works of art therefore stem from a more complex origin. Examining various factors like time, tension, gravity and space, Rex’ primary materials are wood and metal which he processes empirically from the given possibilities of the materials, while at the same time working them to the limits of their inherent ability. His sculptures have a paradoxical double-ness of being both highly material, loaded with an almost fetish presence, while at the same time expressing poetic and immaterial aesthetics, outside any given time or culture.
