Trykkeriet invited Lotte Konow Lund to explore printing techniques based on her distinctive drawing technique, and over the past year she has produced a series of etchings in collaboration between Trykkeriet and the graphics department at Khio and workshop manager Scott O´Rourke. Konow Lund says about work:
Trykkeriet has given me a unique opportunity to investigate a technique I have not worked with since I was a student at the art school in Rogaland, and which I already felt at home in. I have therefore spent the last year a lot of time to understand the material, the tool and the technique, and have chosen motifs that challenge me in different ways, be it in lines or surfaces with aquatint. Thematically, I have stuck to the close and corporeal, and have wanted the prints to collectively show what I believe is a common experience of danger seeping into our most intimate and private spheres.
