Cloud 9 + Political song for Jessica Simpson to sing
The young and aspiring artist Ida Ekblad is filling all the halls and
rooms of the first floor at the Museum of Contemporary Art with her
works. Her is her legendary large-size poster of Jessica Simpson, minus
the text of the commercial she was original part of, but added a
refreshing (but rather used) piece of chewing gum on her eye. And there
are other works containing several different found garbage materials.
And some abstract paintings. But the real highlight is the large
installation filling the whole of the golden hall: Supermarket trolleys
filled with heavy garbage material, and words of poems carved into their
rubber wheels. The wheels were soaked in paint and rolled over
canvases, displaying the words in improvisational patterns. All made
here in this building.
