ESDIP Berlin is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of photography by Txuca from March 29th to April 11th, 2013. The exhibition marks the first presentation of her work in Germany. Txuca is a portrait photographer of individuals and performing arts, born in Madrid. She is a visual creator communicating with the viewer by transmitting feelings and moods.
“Attracted by the magic of body language and creation, my artistic practice is based on experimental portraits of bodies articulating creative actions. Through a use of time and movement, the motion of my subject merges with my own to create a complete composition. Precise choreography or spontaneous movement are both used depending on the subject – the main focus is to capture portraits of the creative process in action. This interest
in the human figure and its movements has led me to doing self-portraits as another body of work related to my anthropomorphic studies.”
Txuca’s exhibition “Shall We Dance” in ESDIP Berlin presents seven ink jet photographic prints in black and white. The series is a motion project between artist Suso33 and Txuca. In this series the artist performs under unusual circumstances. Instead of on-stage for an audience or in a public space, a carefully designed, intimate setting is created by the photographer for the action to occur. Once the dance begins, interaction between photographer and artist results in a dialogue captured to form the final piece of art: “Shall we Dance”.
Txuca was born in 1975 in Madrid, Spain. Lives in Berlin and works between Berlin, Madrid and NYC. After studying Bachelor of Arts and then Illustration, she gained a BA in Audiovisual Communication from the UEM European University of Madrid in 2000.
