Flora Danica

For the portfolio Flora Danica, a collaboration between BORCH Editions and the Natural History Museum of Denmark, nine contemporary Danish artists created contemporary prints working with historic copper plates. The Flora Danica (1761–1884), a comprehensive encyclopedic Enlightenment project, was a collaboration between scientists and engravers over a period of 123 years. The original copper plates, still in the possession of the Natural History Museum, formed the starting point and base material for the contemporary Danish artists who each created a print using the original plates or being inspired by them.

For the two-part gravure A – Z, Danh Vo had the first and last of the original copper plates printed – the beginning and end of an educational and artistic endeavor that spanned more than a century. Vo’s contribution to the Flora Danica portfolio illustrates the audacity of a communal educational and artistic effort that covered such a vast time span that its first and final contributors were not able to meet in person because their life spans did not overlap.
