Jordan/Seydoux — Drawings & Prints
Amélie Seydoux and Bernard Jordan have opened an art gallery specializing in limited editions and drawings in Berlin-Mitte in May 2008.
A web designer, Amélie Seydoux has worked for over 10 years with Eric Seydoux, a renowned silkscreen printmaker and publisher in Paris. She is very well versed in both the publishing scene and printing techniques.
Bernard Jordan has held a Parisian gallery in Paris for over 20 years. For many years he has consecrated a part of his exhibition space to prints and multiples, working with French and foreign publishers. In 2008 he launched a second space in Zurich where a part of the exhibition room is dedicated to drawings.
Jordan and Seydoux’s wish to be partners arose from their mutual attachment to original limited editions, that allow artists the possibility to create original art work that they could not otherwise do. Those original art works are the result of a close and subtile collaboration between the artist and the printmaker. The number of prints for such editions is usually rather small (10 to 40), and their prices are affordable.
In their gallery, Amélie Seydoux and Bernard Jordan propose a selection of original prints and multiples by international artists, coming from the best publishers. The gallery alternate between presenting collective and one-man shows, as well as drawing exhibitions.
Since october 2009 the Gallery Jordan / Seydoux is also publisher. The first edition was made with berliner artist Frank BADUR, a series of 6 woodcuts printed by Tabor Presse Berlin. In January 2011 the Gallery presented its second edition, 2 big lithographies from french artist Françoise PÉTROVITCH printed by Tabor Presse Berlin. Its third edition, Recso-Verto 0°, 25°, 45°, is a series of three screen prints by François MORELLET published on the occasion of the second solo show of the artist in the Gallery (Spring 2011). Printed on both side on a thick translucent material they were produced in Paris by Atelier Eric Seydoux. The Gallerys latest edition, Rosa et/und Jules by french artist Pierre BURAGLIO, is a series of 10 unique lithographs. Printed on various paper types by Atelier Auger in Paris, each one has been afterwards reworked by the artist in his studio (collage, assemblage, colored pencils,...).
