    Filles Interdites (Gate), 2017

    Bronze
    218 × 200 × 30 cm
    Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, Paris

    Ida Ekblad was born in 1980 in Oslo, where she lives and works.

    Her sculpture takes the basic form of a man-high gate made for the first time out of bronze. The patinated portal appears as a tempting invitation to passage, appealing through its ornamental elements that reference to the artist’s journeys through urban spaces, such as roadsides, scrap yards and construction sites. A pair of cartoonish evil eyes tied together by a bow ribbon, also casted in bronze and combining various techniques of patination, emphasises the invocation to pass from one state to another.
    Ida Ekblad is known for her genre-crossing artistic practice that embraces and often mixes painting, sculpture and poetry.
