First Friday of the Month at Niels Borch Jensen Editions

Flora Danica was a project back from the age of enlightenment that had the purpose of mapping the Danish plant life.

It all began with cloudberries, but later on thousands of different flowers, algae and mushrooms were depicted in a spectacular publication that portrayed the wild plant life in Denmark. In a recently opened exhibition, called Flora Danica, you can experience renowned Danish artists interpretations of the old publication.
The forthcoming Friday (5th of April) is the first friday in the new Month, which means that the Danish copperplate printer Niels Borch Jensen has an “open” workshop even, where you are able to experience the work of the old craftsmanship of copperplate printing.
This Friday Niels Borch Jensen welcomes you all in his showroom, Niels Borch Jensen Editions, and besides opening his workshop to the public, you will have the opportunity to experience new creations from renowned artists like Tal R, Marianne Grønnow and John Kørner who all interpreted the original Flora Danica publication.

Clay Ketter is all around us

Today is called 12:12:2012…and a truly a day to remember – how about making this Christmas one to remember. This limited art piece by Clay Ketter, from 2003, could just make this Christmas one to really remember.

First Friday at Niels Borch Jensen showroom Friday 7th Sep from 5-9pm

Etchings by the German artist Anton Henning.

Anton Henning’s artwork has a mysterious quality that escapes categorization. By fluidly shifting between abstract expression and figurative elements, he creates highly original imagery. Still lifes, landscapes, interiors and portraits in a style that is simultaneously playful, grandiose, and ironic.

Anton Henning and Niels Borch Jensen’s Print Shop have made 3 series of etchings since 2004. A selection will be at show in the Showroom.
