Ane Vik Eines
Stone Cold Gold

Welcome to the exhibition opening, Thursday, 11 June 2015, 6-8pm.

The exhibition will be officially opened with a performance by Antidote.


I’m completely Stone Cold Gold.
Got gold in all my pores, drink Blue Nun Gold Edt.
and dig gold every day.
Oh, you’re gold! Completely goldfinger.
Stay gold, I said, but meant peace out.

Ane Vik Eines works with knitted sculptures and objects. She explores the textures that knitting techniques enable, and how gravity is a generative force in her works. Her fearless, direct approach to knitting leaves her open to any and every possibility inhering in the technique.

For the exhibition Stone Cold Gold, Ane Vik Eines explores the world of gold. She is attracted to glitter and shine, to everything that is gold in her environment, for instance, to the sun reflecting off the ocean’s surface and to videos of rappers with hefty jewellery. The contrast and tension between the gaudy and the natural is a recurring theme. Elements from nature also find a place in her works, for instance tree trunks and branches. These elements stand is stark contrast to the textiles that are often knitted with synthetic yarn, yet they also have a supporting function in her sculptures.
Ane Vik Eines (born 1983, Aure) lives and works in Oslo. She has an MA from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO, 2013). Her previous solo exhibitions have been held at Galleri Blunk in Trondheim, at Aure Art Society and at the student galleries of KHiO. Ane Vik Eines has participated in numerous group shows, not least Knock Knock, which was organized by the Association of Norwegian Sculptors; ++ at the Black Box Theatre in Oslo; Textiles Unbehagen in Munich; and Vår Salong! 2015, held at Nackunga Prästgård in Sweden. In 2014 she received a three-year work stipend for young artists.

The exhibition has received funding from Arts Council Norway and Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond.
