Erasure by Vibeke Rohland
Vibeke Rohland’s ’Erasure’ is a project aimed for exhibition in Denmark, USA and from January 2021 at Maison du Danemark in Paris as a part of the group show “In A Slow Manner”.
Supported with Kvadrat’s velvet Harald, Vibeke Rohland’s Erasure attempts to establish a dialogue between the language of colour and silence. The project is described by the artist as a dialogue visualised through the traces she leaves behind and whereby each single work in its own translated form transcends into an object.
Vibeke Rohland: “The choice of fabric was very important to me in this project. From the perspective of history and tradition I chose velour, a seductive fabric used by nobility since 2000 BC in ancient Egypt and China from where it travelled to Italy (Lucca and Florence) that became the center of production from 1400-1600. As a symbol of rank and wealth demonstrated by its depth of yellow, red and blue colour and material, it had and still has a certain demonstration of power built into its appearance and use."
