Metro produce Vinyl Artwork for Bowditch & Rochowski’s ‘Hind Land’

04 June 2013

Metro is delighted to have produced large scale vinyl artwork for Tim Bowditch and Nick Rochowski, winners of the Troika Editions/FORMAT13 Award for their solo exhibition ‘Hind Land’ opening at The Front Room Gallery this month.

The two young artists have produced an intriguing collection of images taking a photographic journey beneath the orbital M25 motorway, concentrating their time not at surface level but beneath the roadway, exploring the voids left by the motorway as it carves its way through the landscape.

Beginning with online mapping, Rochowski and Bowditch identified points accessible via public land and at night, using an achromatic digital camera back (recording the infrared & ultraviolet parts of the spectrum) recorded and scanned the various locations, using hour long exposure times. The resulting images are a set of black and white photographs revealing unseen details of a subterranean landscape with a sinuous texture of almost lunar-like quality with an almost palpable stillness.

Metro has used a relatively new service to produce five large-scale floor to ceiling images all over 2.4m in depth, on Phototex Vinyl, a wonderfully durable material which produces stunning quality prints with amazing tonal depth, colour and clarity. The images will be shown in a dimly lit room of the gallery, representing the subterranean world of the M25 accompanied by de Kersaint Giraudeau’s sound piece of rumbling traffic.

The Front Room, 96 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3EA

Exhibition dates: 5th – 30th June
Opening times: Monday – Friday: 11.00am – 5.00pm
Weekends by appointment only
