The special edition of Associative Drifts by EKTA, featuring a differing, hand-applied, two-coloured foil treatment on the box’s lid and containing an original drawing by the artist. Each box is signed and numbered by the artist on its back. Limited to 6 copies.

The book collects 36 digital c-prints made by the artist during the process of preparing his exhibition at the Market Art Fair in Stockholm. The prints are wrapped in a silk screened tissue paper with texts (in Swedish) by Nina Bondeson and Henrik Björk Wigartz. Accompanying each set is a Ziploc bag containing fragments from the artist’s studio. The collected items that make up the book are housed in a hot-foiled rigid box. The book is designed by Lundgren+Lindqvist.

Linjen vill ha
en forskande blick, ett tänkande öga
linjen vill dragas, vill drapera, linjera, färglägga
ge linjen tid
ge linjen mer tid
ge handen tid och mer tid
ge ögat tid och mer tid
ge blicken tid och mer tid

(Excerpt from Nina Bondeson's essay)
