Underpinned by a strong interests in botany, entomology, geometry, history, folklore and pattern, Janne Malmros uses her research and the manipulation of materials to explore how systems and repetitions of patterns, shapes and motifs etc. can be both simple and complexity at the same time, as well as how patterns, mundane manmade ones as well as those found in nature, can be seen as a system by which one can investigate and order reality. Her practice is multi faceted combining an array of techniques and media including print-making, drawing, video, conceptual photographic and sculptural processes. The printed element is often the starting point for a three-dimensional work that employs careful cutting, installation and folding to explore the potential of repeated pattern, volume, space, surface and shadow.

She knows, as curator Simon Gould puts it, "where to stand to get the best view. Whether working with the magnitude of an entire archive of prints and drawings, a floral dress or even a simple shape, Janne manages to find ways in to pique curiosity and allow her audience both aesthetic and intellectual satisfaction.”

Janne Malmros holds an MA at The Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) and a BA at from Central St. Martins School of Art in London. She has exhibited internationally including at The Jerwood Space, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, London; York Art Gallery, York; The Hirschsprung Collection, Copenhagen; Contemporary Greek Art Institute, Athens; The National Museum, Poland; Skagens Museum, Denmark; Guildhall Art Gallery, London; Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium; Bohuslän Museum, Sweden; The Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul and The Queens Palace, Kabul.
