KONSTELLASJONER
Scenography by Ida Ekblad
Nationaltheatret, Oslo 2015

Norwegian artist Ida Ekblad (born Oslo, 1980) works across painting, sculpture and poetry. Working with found materials, Ekblad exploits the chance element of this approach which brings a restless energy to many of her works.

Jason Rhoades, Four Roads is the first major gallery exhibition of the work of this exceptional artist who died in 2006 at the age of 41. Rhoades lived and worked in Los Angeles. The exhibition occupies BALTIC’s two largest floors, with four installations to be navigated by four interpretive paths or roads.

At a time when we have become desensitised to an image-saturated world, Tony Swain (born Northern Ireland, 1967) uses familiar sections of newspaper that are pieced together as a support for paintings of fragmented landscapes and abstract patterns.

BALTIC+ is the new online home for videos, images, sounds and text celebrating BALTIC’s complete exhibition history. Browse or search the site on your desktop, tablet or mobile and discover more.

Saturday 23 May - Sunday 31 May Come and let your imagination run wild, creating your own transparent abstract artworks and adding them to our hanging 3D installation.
