Description/

Eske Rex’s art derives from a fascination of natural phenomenon. His works often have a dynamic character that interacts with the surrounding space. They are examining various factors like time, force, gravity, and space. The primary materials are wood and metal, and in his work, he aims for simplicity and logic, and yet, theatricality is inherent to his works. The works are carried both by a conceptual idea and by the materials and the craftsmanship, and they are decidedly discursive in their analogue and apolitical statements. ‘Pull’ examines the effects of force caused by tension between materials and space. It is overextended, stretched, split and placed on the verge of collapse. There are no stated explanations – all transfer of information happens on an aesthetic and sensuous level. The traces of craft and the attention to materials sensuously combine the tangible and near with metaphysical, essential and universal matters. The simple materials reflect universal states of mind and situations and link the piece to a metaphysical world, while the craft’s distinct imprints open up for a present and intimate character.


Eske Rex

designer

Copenhagen-based designer Eske Rex came to fame with the invention of his ‘drawing machine,’ an elaborate construction powered by weights and pendulums that produces spirograph drawings from ink. Drawing on a Renaissance-age technique, Rex uses this pendulum-controlled drawing device, which is likened to the geometric image production of the 19th-century mechanical apparatus, the harmonograph. Rex investigates the idea of the machine as a sculpture and installation; his pyramidal room-sized drawing structures stand nine feet in height, and in the center of each, a weighted pendulum waits to be powered by hand (an element that prohibits any two drawings to be exactly alike.)
