foundries: assemblages of artifacts from lunenburg foundry

A new exhibition of assembled found art.

‘Found art’ from the French ‘objet trouve’, is a term to describe art made of objects of a non-art function.

Each of these assemblages is put together from bits and pieces, molds and patterns from the historic Lunenburg Foundry.

These assemblages are not adhered together in anyway. All the pieces are balanced and can be taken apart and reassembled.

None of the original foundry pieces have been altered other than a new coat of flat black paint if the piece had been painted black, and all the unfinished wood surfaces have been sanded and oiled to show the grain.

In a few instances, other objects have been incorporated into the piece, such as shells, stones, metal.

Take home a piece of authentic Lunenburg history.
