About This Project

Pressed to the edge consist of series of large scale etching made on Zinc plates normally used in roofing material. The Zinc plates underwent a process in which they where coated with a mix of bees wax and sheep fat. Afterward a forklift truck and its driver where instructed to drive over the plates. When this took place the wax was removed leaving the traces of the action behind. The plates where then placed in a copper sulphate and salt bath, which scared the plates to the point whereby they could be used for printing. This work was made during my residency period at De Rijksakademie. The plates and the paper prints form there own separate works which have been shown separately as well as together.
