Two optical "rainbow makers"; one solar powered and one electrically powered. Inspiration in the form of Inger Ekdahl's artistry from Ystad Art Museum's collection.
Inger Ekdahl (1922-2014) was an artist and Swedish pioneer in painting during the middle of the 20th century. In many of her later paintings and sculptures, she worked with optical illusions and prismatic effects. Ekdahl often worked from home and used, among other things, a vacuum cleaner as an aid in the production of her work.
There is a clear relationship between Jenny Nordberg and Inger Ekdahl's work. Methods that are both strict and controlled as well as parallel with random elements and effects. The collection INGER - Optical Illusions consists of two objects that both generate rainbow phenomena. One solar energy and the other electric. In the same way that Ekdahl worked in a home environment, Nordberg has developed a kind of home-adapted production line for the final surface treatment of rainbow manufacturers. The process is relatively controlled but also has some indefinite elements.
