Fitting In. Standing Out. Stacey Yates

Fitting in. Standing out. is the next installment from London based artist and photographer Stacey Yates as she further explores her interest in identity through an unlikely subject matter - coffee stirrers.

'Coffee stirrers don't get much of our attention. They aren't particularly necessary. We use them for a matter of seconds and then discard them. I wanted to give them some oxygen and use them to bring something much bigger to the surface that concerns us all .'

Stacey came across Jake's collection of coffee stirrers a year back and has been making images of them in isolation for the past few months. Don't miss out on your chance to see Stacey's images as she uses coffee stirrers as a vehicle to explore identity.

The exhibition will be on display in the coffee shop area at Rough Trade East until 31st July and is kindly sponsored by CutLaserCut and BAF Graphics . More information about Stacey, her work and this particular project can be seen on her website.
