Ditte Ejlerskov We Found Love in a Hopeless Place 5/9 - 5/10

ELASTIC Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo show by Ditte Ejlerskov.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty needs no introduction. As one of the most famous pop singers since 2005 she has had numerous Number-One-Hits, with “We found love” being one of them in 2011. The jabbing beat of this song reigned supreme on radio stations all over the world in 2012. “Yellow diamonds in the light / Now we’re standing side by side” Rihanna starts singing after an intro of an insistent rhythm. The mantra “We found love in a hopeless place” is repeated over and over again until the song leaves its listener with an ambivalent mood between promise and despair. Some might even be annoyed by the high voice, pressing synthesizer and never ending repetition. Why is she stressing us out so much? What is she actually trying to say?

In a series called The Rihanna Paintings (2013), Danish artist Ditte Ejlerskov exercises her obsession for the imagery of pop-star Rihanna. Through different painterly approaches – both large-scale canvases and smaller ones, abstract and representational – the artist lets herself interact with popular culture, consuming a conglomerate of digital imagery she finds online. Part of the project are also The Rihanna Rapports (2013), for which the word “rapport” needs to be understood as follows: firstly a synchronized, trusting relationship, based on exchange; secondly in the sense of “report”.
In contrary to Ejlerskov’s previous projects, this body of work is more of an exercise into finding an honest, unreserved and positive consummation of pop culture. With We Found Love in a Hopeless Place the artist not only analyzes or comments on contemporary culture, she puts herself in relation to her object of investigation.
