Martin Sperlich about the collection of cast iron art at the Victoria&Albert Museum in London."

Art Foundry Altglienicke is mainly realising sculptures of all possible sizes in bronze or aluminum, but is also experienced in working with all other metals or synthetic materials. We scale models and conduct projects from the first idea to the installation of the finished objects. Our space is open for artists to create their models and be part of the actual production process. In our gallery we present a broad spectrumof contemporary art.

Calculations Unites of measurement 

The Western Cast Iron Art Alliance (wciaa.org) seeks visual responses incorporating Fe that depict the ways we quantify and calculate to comprehend our place in the world. Mixed media works that explore mathematics, furnace dimensions, postal fees, shipping weight, ancestry, metric, imperial, hand-span, clothing sizes, climate change, statistics, currency, interstellar/ microscopic distances…. and related matters. It seems our entire society is based on units of measurement, from the founding of science to the organization of time.

The Speculative Object: Site in an Asynchronic Age

Photo: Hanna Makkonen

A collaborative multi-institutional exhibition of computer generated sculptural forms traverse multiple platforms and sites, from traditional to virtual.

The Speculative Object explores emergent sculptural possibilities through an array of technologies. It answers the growing imperative to develop capabilities to disseminate singular artworks art across a variety of venues, from traditional galley spaces to virtual worlds to portable devices. The 23 artworks in this exhibition begin as digital files, move into the historically collectible and archival medium of cast metal, then move back out of their material iterations into further new modalities utilizing 2/3D embedding into navigable Google Earth sites around the globe. The result is multiple, scalable, accessible manifestations of each of the artworks that allow the viewer to experience the speculative object in real-world, but also virtual world coordinates.

Match Plate to Melt – Out A Pattern Exibition 

Photos: Page Burch

Patterns are an integral part of the casting process. They are the personal histories of the castings we make and tell a story about how the object came to fruition. Made from a variety of materials, these often-overlooked items can be artworks by themselves. Match plates, wooden patterns, core boxes, found objects, and rubber molds produce the castings that we look at, but these things often have an inherent beauty and uniqueness all their own. From Match Plate to Melt-Out seeks to showcase the skills, tools, materials, and ideas that make up the patterns that make our molds.

Performance became accepted as a form of artistic expression in the 1970s and became “art that cannot be bought and sold.” Performance then became the most tangible art form of the period. It has been considered a way of bringing to life the many formal and conceptual ideas on which the making of art is based. In today’s contemporary art world, there have been many artists that often use fabricated objects to show a process or an action.

There have been a number of iron artists that have transformed the actual casting process into performance, those that use the physical properties of the material as a tool, and some that even use the objects they cast in conjunction with their own body. This exhibition will explore how artists interact with or through cast iron objects by presenting the evidence rather than the performance.

The mission of the International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art is to “create an international platform for the exploration and practice of contemporary cast iron sculpture and to inspire global participation in the aesthetic, conceptual, cultural, historical, and technical dialogue on contemporary cast iron art.” The possibilities for cultural exchange inherent in the conference’s siting within different international communities are extensive, productive, and relevant. The ICCCIA is an opportunity for international iron sculptors to work side by side, exchange aesthetic and technical ideas, share conceptual questions, and engage in a dialogue about contemporary cast iron art.
