KALEIDOSCOPE x Counter Editions: Ida Ekblad


Ida Ekblad, Picture Phosphorescence, the Pure, Again, 2015.
February 19, 2015


KALEIDOSCOPE is delighted to announce the release of Ida Ekblad’s screen-print Picture Phosphorescence, the Pure, Again (2015). This is the first in a series of limited editions produced in partnership with Counter Editions, UK’s leading website for buying contemporary art.

Employing the inherent block-building process of screen printing, the Norwegian artist has created a print of competing colors and surfaces. Using a special additive, the final screened layer of white ink used for the graffiti figures and calligraphy is passed under a special heater, causing the ink to rise.

This edition is released on the occasion of a definitive monographic survey on Ida Ekblad that serves as the cover story of KALEIDOSCOPE’s current issue #23, comprised of an essay by Peter J. Amdam, an interview by Cory Arcangel, and an original portrait by photographer Sølve Sundsbø.

Edition of 75
4-colour screen-print using ink with Puff Additive
on Somerset Tub Sized Satin 410gsm
60 x 42 cm (24 x 16.5 in)
Signed numbered and dated by the artist on the reverse
550 EUR
