Stephan Keppel

The Netherlands, The Hague LhGWR

The photographic work of Stephan Keppel (1973) originate from marginal phenomena related to architecture, interiors and suburbs. He collects images, objects and devices, such as office furniture from chipboard, discarded laser printers and bundled fluorescent lights, to engage with them in a long-term 'relationship'. This results in a process in which photography, reproduction and the supporting media are well matched. Keppel graduated in 1998 in Fine Arts at the KABK. His well-stocked resume tells us he was nominated for the Bouw in Beeld Prize in 2010. Last year he released the publication Reprinting the city. The vast majority of 2013 Keppel will reside in Paris, which will be reflected in the work that is presented at Unseen.
