Everyday life is central to Ida’s work- as an imposition, but also conveying grace; as a voracious monster and a source of happiness; as a disaster and a glimmer of hope. FRA ÅRE TIL OVN stands for transformation- the kind of which takes place billions of times a day. Ultimately, all an artist does is, through thoughts and actions, convert material, images, color, or politics into a new state or form. When this succeeds, it results in substantial added value, that is, knowledge, joy, or anger.
