Descripción del Artista
Gihan Tubbeh (1984) is a photographer and visual artist based in Lima, Peru. Her work revolves around the poetics of time in relation to the territory; a poetic archeology in search for hidden signs and rhythms engraved in the landscape. Her images intend to capture the echoes of something immeasurably larger than our footprints in the landscape. The rumor of an indecipherable codified language; a secret writing that sometimes allow harmonies to emerge. Triggered by impossible questions, Gihan exposes signs and enigmas, with no explicit narratives in search of a vocabulary closer to poetry and music than to visual references. Nature speaks as an eruption of being. Inherent to nature and imprinted in the landscape, violence is a force before all, a vehicle between death and new life. A mythical terrain that reminds us, that nature acts as a mother who creates everything and destroys everything. After studying photography, she is selected ... by nomination to join the Joop Swart Masterclass from World Press Photo, and then, Reflexions Masterclass holding multiple meetings to develop projects during 3 years in different locations across Europe. Her work has earned international recognition, including 1st prize awards from World Press Photo, POYI-Lat Pictures of the Year International (Latin-American Photographer of the Year), Magnum Foundation Grantee, 1st prize of Premio Pampa Energía FOLA, among others. Focusing on long-term projects, Tubbeh ́s work explores the spiritual and the perceptual dimensions of the human experience in relation to the planet and the cosmos. Captivated by the secret order of nature, the contradiction of how some opposites must bond to exist, or the irrationality in human emotions, her work aims to create new senses by combining incompatibles intuitively, where ambiguity accidentally becomes meaningful or reveals truth. Tubbeh’s work has been exhibited internationally in numerous museums, galleries, and art centers such as MOLAA Museum of Latin American Art in Los Angeles, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, Casa de las Américas in Madrid, FOLA Fototeca Latinoamericana in Buenos Aires, among others. She has participated in numerous international festivals of photography such as Les Recontres d'Arles (Arles, France), Angkor Festival of Photography (Siem Reap, Cambodia), Noorderlicht Photo Festival (Groningen, Amsterdam), Paraty em Foco (Paraty, Brazil), Dali International Photography Festival (Dali, China), Foro Latinoamericano de Fotografía de Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil), Monat der Fotografie (Berlin, Germany), and others. Member of Women Photograph and The Journal Collective. Gihan is currently part of the nominating committee and jury of the Joop Swart Masterclass and 6x6 Talent Program of the World Press Photo. Gihan regularly conducts workshops for local and international photographers throughout Latin American Photography festivals, competitions, and other events.
