Expedition Enamel Casting is a journey to the materials brass and enamel. Through extensive experiments in metal casting, it was possible to immerse into their world and explore their interaction. In dialogue with the material, each experiment posed a question, each result provided answers and guided the path. New ways of dealing with material and working technique emerged. The exhibits are pieces discovered along the way. In their appearance, they play with the tension between artefact and geofact, between new and old, challenging the viewer and stimulating imagination.
