Klara Lidén

How do you carve your own space out of the modern metropolis? Born in Stockholm in 1979 and originally trained as an architect, Berlin-based artist Klara Lidén has addressed this question for more than a decade in a practice that incorporates video, installation, and sculptural works.

Lidén’s use of found objects across her chosen media—whether appropriating public space, advertising posters and tarpaulins, or infrastructural debris—reflects a new generation’s preoccupation with the limits of consumerism and the urban experience. Her materials may be ubiquitous, but the careful balance of pure physicality and poetic subtlety across her oeuvre is far from everyday. Known for fusing our collective environment to a labyrinthine suspension of reality with a surprise behind every turn, this 2011 Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst nominee’s works have been shown at the 4. Berlin Biennale, Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg, and was recently featured in a solo exhibition at Berlin’s Galerie Neu.

Untitled, 2013

Untitled, 2013 sees Klara Lidén bringing her subtle physicality to a highly unusual work for the artist—while still retaining a number of her oeuvre’s signature elements. Hand-printed on a lightweight paper with a gentle gloss finish, this limited edition of 14 pieces was crafted using carefully inked cobblestones.

The six individual, geometric forms on Untitled, 2013 are an elegant extension of the artist’s use of discarded urban materials. Arranged in a structural pattern that gives a nod to Lidén’s architectural interests, these unique prints open up the question of individual experience in a collective space to very topical interpretations. A musing on the building blocks of the city that is as literal as it is metaphorical, Untitled, 2013 is ready to own its space wherever you want the reminder: to be part of the fabric of the metropolis, you need to engage with it at every level.

Klara Lidén's materials may be ubiquitous, but her editions are anything but. Amazing Editions is pleased to present this rare opportunity to add one of these very limited works to your collection.
