The Copper House Gallery will launch INDIA 50 / -- , a photographic exhibition by Mexican visual artist Alejandro Gómez de Tuddo, on Wednesday 9th April 2014, from 6 to 8 pm. Curated by Jean-Philippe Imbert, this exhibition is sponsored by Dublin City University, Ireland, as well as CONACULTA, Mexico, and the Mexican Embassy in Ireland.
INDIA 50 / -- shows 25 black and white photographs, printed on fine art cotton paper. These 25 works are one half of the full collection, called India 50 / 50, consisting of 50 images -25 in colour and 25 in black and white. In the black and white collection, shown for the first time in Dublin, the ancestral poetic essence of India is captured through the timelessness resulting out of the merging of space and place, and of people and minds.
Born in Mexico, Alejandro Gómez de Tuddo divides his time between Rome and Mexico City. He has studied photography at the École Nationale de Photographie of Arles in France, and at the International Center of Photography (ICP) of New York. Having studied cinematography at New York University (NYU), he also holds a degree in Law from the Universidad Iberoamericana of Mexico City and a Masters degree in International Economic Law from the Université de Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne). His work has been exhibited worldwide in museums, galleries, art fairs and festivals and belongs to several private and public collections across the globe.
