Forest of Prints - Danish Graphic Artists
January 16 – September 11, 2016
131 Danish graphic artists manifest their abilities with a total installation. The organization Danish Graphic Artists comprises more than 220 professional graphic artists, and most of them contributes to the exhibition "Forest of Prints". They have created new works in specific formats that form a part of the total installation – a forest. They all were focused to elaborate on the theme “The individual in relation to the notion of global” or if you want the individual versus the global. All prints have been united in one common staging – a forest – in a dialogue with the exhibition spaces. This united way of working is possible because of Danish Graphic Artists being an association of professionally working artists. Read more on the Danish website www.danskegrafikere.dk

The Lightness of Paper and a Forest to walk in
The huge numbers of prints are installed and presented hanging down from the ceiling in free space without any framing. The paper is long thin banners of Chinese Wenzho paper. Each art work is hanging from wires close to the ceiling. Daylight mingles from the windows and electric spots from the ceiling. In this way a “Graphic Forest” is formed where light is playing between the “leaves” and accentuate the inherent lightness and weight. Graphic work is most beautiful without framing.
Knowledge about Graphics
The visitors are offered more knowledge about the many graphic techniques through framed posters on the wall. Also viewing samples of a graphic compendium are placed in the exhibition holding easily read texts useful for as well the professional and the amateur. Maybe some will find inspiration to try printing and work with graphic art.
A regular catalogue book will follow in Spring 2016. This catalogue will document the exhibition and be a lyrical statement to the work of the artist or to the theme of the exhibition. The statement can be readable, unreadable, meaningful, senseless, poetic, prose, abstract, minimalist, etc. Uniting for them are is that they are tied to letters. All together the graphic work on exhibit, the compendium, the later catalogue and the artist’s books from Leipzig show something about the range of graphic expression.
