A selection of works for my solo exhibition NO CHORUS at Nevven Gallery in Gothenburg 2017. (All photos by David Eng)
No Chorus – which could be read as a manifesto even before than just a title – doesn’t make exception to this paradigm. The show features mainly textile pieces, the latest turn on the Swedish artist’s production. The bright colors and clean cut of these works make for some of the most designed and pleasant looking works in Ekta’s recent production. Their polished neatness is balanced by an abstract taste which defies simple choices and where the uneven lines find balance out of the least expected compositions. On the other side, juxtaposed to the fabrics, we find a selection of his most recent works on paper to bring a glimpse of the chaotic and unsteady battleground where the lines and shapes populating his textiles originate. No Chorus is the latest step on a path which never ends to astound, a precious chance to witness the work of one of the most unique artists working in Europe right now or simply a new opportunity to be surprised by Ekta.
