SCRIM presents a record of Ida Nissen’s creative process. Remnants from the colour darkroom and the large-format camera blend with memories, found images, book clippings and cut-out shapes to form a stream of consciousness interspersed with Nissen’s finished collage works.
The book unpacks ideas and underlying manoeuvres in flux between distant and close, foreign, and alike that search into the artist’s South Korean origin. Printed in five colours and with silver Pantone ink throughout, the book is nodding to the gelatin silver darkroom process fundamental to Nissen’s analogue practice.
SCRIM is published by Lodret Vandret and printed in an edition of 300, of which 50 is a special edition. This comes with an additional silkscreen impression on the front and a unique set of photogram cut-outs enclosed in an acid-free sleeve inside the back cover.
