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. This is the first object within a coming series of several industrial processes adapted for studio production.
