The simple circle settings consisting of an abundance of sculptured silk cocoons on a large canvas. Elegantly executed these artworks are on the verge between painterly flatness and sculptural making with the use of found-objects. They are about the freedom in space, as you can hang them horizontally, vertically, on the ceiling, floating in the air; as singles or in groups. Ida individually transforms each cocoon into a small sculpture, so it allows the passing from one identity to another: from the egg-form white cocoon to the open-hand sculpture with six wings (an arm and five fingers).
