Stuart Whipps, Duddeston Viaduct


Hand printed photograph, 508 x 406 mm
Edition of 25, £150 each


Stuart Whipps is an artist based in Birmingham, whose practice is broadly concerned with the aftermath of shift and change, whether this be physical, economic, social or other. His work deals with the impact on identities predicated by these shifts. He has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe, receiving the Observer Hodge award in 2006 and the East International Award in 2009.
This photograph was taken as part of a series by Whipps charting the Duddeston Viaduct. Constructed in 1864, the viaduct weaves for 365 yards through Digbeth, coming to an abrupt end at the Grand Union Canal just next to the gallery.
