“i believe in the spiritual and magical power of art. when art is made new, we are made new with it.” - ugo rondinone
last chance to view ugo rondinone's exhibition 'vocabulary of solitude' @arkenmuseum, denmark, closing ‪this sunday, december 9.‬
"arken’s 150-meter-long art axis forms the setting for the exhibition. 45 hyperrealistic clowns cast from male and female models make up the installation 'vocabulary of solitude' from 2014. usually clowns are happy, energetic and entertaining, but here they are the opposite: contemplative and passive. 'vocabulary of solitude' is a portrait of a single person’s day represented in 45 acts. they are individually titled in the present tense: be. breathe. sleep. dream. wake. rise. sit. hear. look. think. stand. walk. pee. shower. dress. drink. fart. shit. read. laugh. cook. smell. taste. eat. clean. write. daydream. remember. cry. nap. touch. feel. moan. enjoy. float. love. hope. wish. sing. dance. fall. curse. yawn. undress. lie. each passive clown is a stand-in for one of these actions. together they form an endless 24-hour loop.
rondinone’s work oscillates between the romantic outlook of the natural world and the existential introspection of the inner world. he plays on our intuitive and impulsive recognition of motifs like a clown, a tree or a rainbow. the rainbow in particular primarily signals beauty, emancipation and innocence. in addi­tion the rainbow tells a fundamental political story of personal freedom, as the symbol par excel­lence of the lgbt+ milieu and the rights of homosexuals.
the simple, solid message is that you are free to love the one you love. this is an indisputable, universal human right that may be taken for granted in denmark, which is generally known as the world’s first country to introduce civil marriages for homosexuals. however, not everyone enjoys this right, so there are still freedom struggles to be fought. the rainbow speaks a global visual language that inspires empathy, joy and fighting spirit." - arken museum of modern art
