David Rowan: Pacha Kuti Ten

David Rowan: Pacha Kuti Ten

10th May 2013 - 21st July 2013

The New Art Gallery Walsall, Walsall

Pacha Kuti Ten is an exploration of the hidden, unknown and often forgotten underground environments that exist beneath Birmingham and the Black Country.  Rowan has researched and visited rivers, mines and bunkers that lie beneath the surface of the more familiar urban landscape and has produced a stunning series or photographs shown for the first time at The New Art Gallery Walsall.

The name Pacha Kuti or pachacuti refers to an Inca apocalypse legend, a cyclic time of duality and change that roughly translates as “the time when the world will turn upside down.”  It seems particularly fitting that these subterranean images should be shown high upin the 4th floor gallery.

David Rowan is an artist who lives and works in Birmingham.  He works with photography, film and audio works.
