Launched in 2008 in Berlin by Amélie Seydoux and Bernard Jordan, the gallery has been focused on contemporary drawings and prints since the beginning.

The collaboration between Jordan and Seydoux results from a mutual attachment to fine art editions, especially formats that provide artists with an opportunity to experiment with printing techniques and thereby open up new fields of creativity.

The gallery shows artworks that range from geometrical to minimal, to figurative, to baroque: a wide range of fine pieces. It has also taken on the role of publisher, collaborating with artists to produce limited editions. Each print is an original project, hand-signed and numbered by the artist.

JORDAN/SEYDOUX has been located for 10 years in the Auguststraße 22 in Berlin-Mitte. We keep very pleasant memories of our lovely space and Kiez. Since the end of 2018 we are mainly online, you can follow us on Instagram and email us for any information. We ship worldwide.

JORDAN/SEYDOUX is thrilled to present its first online exhibition featuring lockdown-made drawings by Jean-Daniel Berclaz, Cécile Dupaquier and Masha Sha.

From the frustration of not having been able to make a pop-up exhibition during the Gallery Weekend Berlin (cancelled like all other events) came the desire to present drawings made during the confinement. The online format was obvious from the beginning. Since 2019 JORDAN/SEYDOUX has no more a space of its own, and in those times of reduced mobility, it would not have been so wise to rent one.

The question was and still is what is an online exhibition? How does it look like? How to go interactive with simple means? The answer we found is a short film (8mn) visible on youtube presenting the artists and their works in their home/studio along with photos of the works and photos of the artist’s creative space visible on the gallery website and on the artsy platform.

The presented drawings were made between mid-March and early May so was the music used for the film. The song « escape (1) » was composed and recorded by Graf Tati & Cécile Dupaquier in April. Many thanks to them, to Éléonore de Montesquiou who made the film and to Matthias Stief who shot the photos.
