until 22.10. | #0714ARTatBerlin | Galerie Niels Borch Jensen shows from the 10th September 2016 the group exhibition Indentations by the artists Lewis Baltz, Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Adam Jeppesen, Clay Ketter and Boris Mikhailov.
As part of this year’s European Month of Photography, Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions show works by Lewis Baltz, Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Adam Jeppesen, Clay Ketter, and Boris Mikhailov. The exhibition investigates the medium of photogravure, offering a survey of its spectrum of conceptual possibilities.
Photogravure is one of the oldest and most haptic ways of transferring a photo to a piece of paper: A photopositive is brought onto a printing plate by exposing its light-sensitive material through a finely rasterized film, thereby creating microscopic indentations in the plate’s surface. Depending on their depth, these indentations hold different amounts of ink during the printing process, thus allowing for a more extensive colour gradation than any other printing technique. Niels Borch Jensen Editions have been working with photogravures since the early 1990s in order to accommodate contemporary artists’ desire to include photographic material into their work.
