Stephen Keppel - Flat Finish
Dutch visual artist Stephan Keppel’s ongoing research on public space and urban structures continues with an exploration of the known and unknown structures and surfaces of New York City. By assembling a subjective databank of images and reproductions of architectural references and urban forms, he strips the city of its clichéd myth and gives a new perspective on the metropolis, wherein his own photographs combine with re-photographed archival material and other found footage. Printed using special high-pigmented inks, the book also questions its own (re-)production, becoming part of Keppel’s endless loop of recycled images, works, and installations.
