Stuart Whipps at Unseen Photo Fair & Festival 2015 in Amsterdam

15 September 2015
The Unseen Photo Fair and Festival 2015 takes place in Amsterdam this September and is dedicated to embracing emerging talent and unseen work by established artists.  Metro is delighted to have produced innovative work for artist Stuart Whipps as printed C types, mounted to coloured valchromat MDF which will be shown by the Division of Labour Gallery.

Whipp’s latest work which will be on show at Unseen takes inspiration from three rocks; Welsh Slate, Scottish Shale and Portland Stone focusing on the object’s potential as carrier of a myriad of stories. Whipps first came across Welsh Slate by chance whilst researching a former quarry in the small town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. He explains “It’s in the middle of Snowdonia National Park but if you look at it on a map, there is a hole; it’s not officially part of it, it’s been judged as having a lack of sufficient natural beauty. I ended up thinking of the material itself that has this cartographic separation, and the political ramification of these decisions, as well as its extraction.”

Using these near-abstract relics of industry as a gateway to other narratives, Whipps links unrelated strands of research to explore the intricacies of production, labour and value systems tied up in the history of the place.

Metro will have a presence at Unseen this year and we are particularly excited by the focus and emphasis on new work and the prospect of meeting meet a new generation of international talent, emerging artists, new works and galleries who attend international fairs.
