Studio Adapted Industrial Processes
Studio Adapted Industrial Processes – Tin Casting
Jenny Nordberg created the Tin Plinth with the cubical geometry of the classical gallery plinth in mind. The material in the plinth however – tin, is maybe less classical. Often working with the tension between the hand made and the machine made Nordberg wanted to explore the production of a sheet material that could be used to create a plinth. To do this she used the limitations of a studio environment as her framework, and developed a method to make sheet metal by casting tin in large molds. The outcome is an uneven and rough, almost brutal expression. The Tin Plinth was made for The Plinth Project exhibited at Etage Projects 18/11-16-21/1-17.
Also included in this collection is the Tin Table.
These are the first objects within a coming series of several industrial processes adapted for studio production.
