Mario Popham and Tom Baskeyfield: Of Flesh and Stone at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 9 March–29 April 2018, free entry - Visit now

The hills of North Wales have been transformed by the large-scale extraction of slate; its mass manipulation spawning towns and communities, its dissemination satisfying a global demand. The landscape bears the scars of this conquest, and nurtures stories of its making. A past dependence on the rock continues to shape the human narratives unfolding within these hills and valleys. Meanwhile, on distant rooftops of towns and cities forged by the very same forces of industry, the dwindling vestiges of these mountainsides endure amongst the glass, concrete and steel. For Of Flesh and Stone at HOME, Mario Popham and Tom Baskeyfield continue their exploration into how we have shaped, and in turn, been shaped by stone through their unique dialogue between drawing and photography.
