Artist Talk with Ida Ekblad and Matias Faldbakken

Ida Ekblad and Matias Faldbakken in conversation with Laura Vuille
Event

To inaugurate the second chapter of their involvement in the ReCollect! series, co-curator Laura Vuille talks to the two artists about their individual practices, artistic intentions and experiences in working collaboratively.

At first glance, the works of Norwegian artists Matias Faldbakken (*1973) and Ida Ekblad (*1980) appear very different. While Faldbakken often uses industrial materials and heavy objects that he then manipulates or even partially destroys, Ekblad’s works exude a distinct vibrancy and spontaneity that come from the energetic movement of her compositions, the bold use of colour and the attentive use of found materials. But the pair are united by a shared interest in object-based art – both its possibilities and its problems.

For ReCollect!, the two have been working together for the first time, creating joint installations where they interpret selected works from the Kunsthaus Collection through their own hands-on approach.
