BORCH Editions was founded in Copenhagen by Niels Borch Jensen in 1979 with the aim of bringing emerging and established contemporary artists to work seriously with print media by producing projects that stand as significant, self-contained works of art. Over the years, the studio has established a solid reputation as one of the world’s leading producers and publishers of fine art prints. Through the studio’s more than 40-year history runs an undercurrent of bold experimentation and continuous hard work to reshape and revitalise the field of printmaking together with some of the world’s leading artists like Mamma Andersson, Georg Baselitz, Huma Bhabha, Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Julie Mehretu, Ragnar Kjartansson, Danh Vo, and Stanley Whitney.

For the IFPDA Fair fall edition, we are excited to present Tacita Dean’s most recent print projects 'Inferno' and 'Antigone (offset),' both 2021. Inferno is an ambitious photogravure project relating to Dean’s upcoming eponymous design for 'The Dante Project,' a newly commissioned ballet based on the 'Divine Comedy' with music by Thomas Adès and choreography by Wayne McGregor. The ten-metre print, made in eight parts, shows Dante and Virgil’s descent into Hell as described by Dante Alighieri in his 'Divine Comedy,' 1321. The prints show an inverted mountainscape in negative inscribed with text, marks, splashes, and collaged elements. 'Antigone (offset)' on the other hand relates to Dean’s hour long 35mm double Cinemascope film work 'Antigone' (2018) which is concerned with the intervening years and the untold story of Antigone and Oedipus restlessly wandering in the wilderness between the two plays 'Oedipus Rex' and 'Oedipus at Colonus.' The film is created through the same masking technique first developed by Dean for 'FILM' (2011) at Tate London. Like eyes, the stills are paired as diptychs replicating the double projection in 'Antigone.'
