This project relates to Ore.e refineries which is a non-registared company producing refined ore at any location. Using traditional methods. So far the project has produced one copper-plate usable for fine Graphic Printmaking. The plate was given to a selected (unnamed) Academic Professor of Contemporary Grafic Artist in Finland. The crew would like to thank the residency program of Villa Karo in Grand Popo, Benin for their support to the project. Hope the forge blower we buildet with Boris is in good use!
