In 2015, KALEIDOSCOPE launched a collaboration with Counter Editions, UK’s leading website for buying contemporary art, on a series of limited-edition screen prints. The first output was Ida Ekblad’s screenprint Picture Phosphorescence, the Pure, Again (2015).
Employing the inherent block-building process of screen printing, the Norwegian artist 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 was passed under a special heater, causing the ink to rise.
This edition was released on the occasion of a definitive monographic survey on Ekblad that served as the cover story of KALEIDOSCOPE’s Issue #23, comprised of an essay by Peter J. Amdam, an interview by Cory Arcangel and an original portrait by photographer Sølve Sundsbø.
