ARKEN presents a solo show featuring Eva Steen Christensen (b. 1969), one of Denmark’s pre-eminent contemporary sculptors. Showcasing an array of the artist’s key works, the exhibition also incorporates two entirely new sculptures created especially for ARKEN.

Eva Steen Christensen investigates the qualities of different materials and the stories they contain. She is keenly interested in physical materials such as textiles, paper, bronze and concrete, and she investigates how the materials used in art have manifested in the images and traditions that shape us as people. For example, how has art’s cultivation of the naked female body, ‘the female nude’, impacted our view of women and gender? Steen Christensen wants to take ownership of such issues, displacing traditional masculine values to imbue the feminine with genuine power.
