Janne Malmros is a visual artist born in Denmark. She studied at The Slade School of Fine Art, Central St. Martins School of Art and at Copenhagen University. She has travelled widely, and lived in countries such as Afghanistan and Belgium as well as in London for many years. Malmros’ work is infused by strong interest in the natural world, history, fashion, geometry, colour and pattern. Both manmade patterns as well as those found in nature. Her practice combines an array of techniques as well as a range of media including print-making, drawing, collage, video and elements of photographic and sculptural processes. Research, experimentation and installation play an important part in her work. 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 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, South Korea; Oriel Sycharth Gallery, Wales; Incinerator Art Space, Sydney, Australia and Florence Nightingale Museum, London. Janne is also a botanical illustrator and arts facilitator.
