These pieces made and designed by Danish creative Eske Rex, who lives and works in Copenhagen, are works where architecture, art, design, and craft are all intertwined to make sculptural installations that intrigue. Even though they were produced a number of years ago they still feel relevant today and look like the kind of work that will continue to look contemporary in years to come.
I was especially drawn to the series "Divided Self" and "Measuring Space". Divided Self is a collection of split wooden figures in various shapes which are created by gluing the shells. They then place a magnet in each section which forces them towards each other, only the string keeping them seperated by a few centimetres. Although stationary in the photos, they also rotate and vibrate slightly making for a spectacular show when viewed in person.
These two series in-particular are striking and quite dramatic, but I also like the other more subtle works in their portfolio that use wood in unusual and unique ways. It's really great to see an artist turn a basic material in to something of substance with underlying meaning. I hope you like these photos from the Eske Rex portfolio and will click on the link below to have a look through what else is on offer. Enjoy.
