Pacha Kuti X

17 March to 5 May 2012

Birmingham based artist David Rowan’s solo exhibition, ‘Pacha Kuti X’, is a new moving image work exploring the unknown underground sub-infrastructure of Birmingham.

‘Pacha Kuti X’ is an intervention in an underground landscape as a fixed position video with a rich, subtle soundtrack depicting hidden, sometimes unknown or forgotten underground environments. Existing within a hidden topography Rowan redefines the dark spaces of Digbeth’s underground tunnels with customised lighting dropped into the space like alien beacons. Investigating these dark and unusual landscapes as an exploration of the absence of light, Rowan captures the slow secret environmental and architectural change occurring below.
