BORCH Editions was founded in Copenhagen in 1979.
Since 1979 the gallery has established its position as one of the world’s leading producers and publishers of fine art prints. Among its many collaborations with internationally renowned artists are Georg Baselitz, Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Julie Mehretu and Danh Vo.
Printmaking, especially woodcut, has long been an integral part of Mamma Andersson’s artistic practice. For her first collaboration with BORCH Editions Andersson created a suite of three prints, combining woodcut and etching on Japanese paper.
"Cupido", 2019, woodcut drypoint, 67 x 46 cm, edition of 12. Printed and published by BORCH Editions.
Stanley Whitney’s work makes a vibrant case for the significance of abstraction in contemporary art. He is known for organising his works on canvas or paper by means of horizontal and vertical lines, using the colour fields in between to reflect on the qualities of the single colours as well as their relation to each other. In his series of eight black-and-white etchings, Whitney abandons his signature grid in favour of a more investigative approach, creating works of remarkable spatial depth.
"Untitled", 2016, spit bite aquatint and soft ground etching, 74 x 82.5 cm, edition of 18. Printed and published by BORCH Editions.
Danh Vo’s work is an exploration of the ways in which identity is formed in different cultural and political contexts - often through the lens of his own and his family’s biography or important historical events. His photogravure projects with BORCH editions are an integral part of his artistic practice, emphasising both the narrative power of photography and the transitory nature of cultural identity.
"IMUUR2", 2012, photogravure, 44 x 52 cm, frame 49 x 57 cm, edition of 24. Printed and published by Niels Borch Jensen Editions.
