Grethe Grathwol: Organisings. Photography and Photobooks

Publikation: Bidrag der ikke har en tekstformUdstillingForskning


A research based exhibition by Anne Elisabeth Toft.

A historical exhibition that brings new relevance to Grethe Grathwol’s photography, and to her and Willy Ørskov’s work with photobooks. Focusing on man-altered landscapes and the city’s structural changes, Grathwol’s photography is an important early reference for today’s Danish landscape photography. Celebrating the work and life of Grete Grathwol, who passed away in 2017, this exhibition is highlighting the book Terrain-vague. Perhaps the most photography-based of all of her publications, it is a distinguished example of her work. Published by Grathwol in 1992 after the death of Willy Ørskov and dedicated to him, it also stands as a manifesto of the essential in his art. The book follows up on the couple’s long-standing joint oeuvre, and it illustrates how close Grathwol and Ørskov were tied together in their work and artistic practices.
