The Rorschach Text - Martin Bladh
Limited edition of 50 numbered and signed copies.
The Rorschach Text is a part of a larger introspective work (Suture(s), 2013 - ) in which the artist tries to unlock childhood anxieties, dreams and fantasies through aesthetic creation and free association.
Bladh has subjected himself to Hermann Rorschach’s inkblot test (the standard deck of ten cards), and used the verbatim association texts as blueprints for ten mixed media collages - “the layman’s desperate attempt to translate an unconscious desire.” Each specific picture has later been linked to a certain memory, recurrent fantasy, dream, artefact or objects of significance related to the artist’s childhood, bringing together a unique autobiographical document.
