Photographer Chema Madoz presents in "Las Reglas del Juego", a compilation of his images created between 2008 and 2014. The exhibition will be in the madrilian space Alcalá 31 until August.

 
 
It is a visual poet who writes poetry with objects, lines, volumes and shadows, objects in black and white that make us more questions than gives answers. Chema Madoz, National Photography Prize in 2000, is one of our most personal, unique and recognizable photographers, and he has displayed his collection of mental constructions and poetic visions in Sala Alcalá 31 of Madrid under the title "Las Reglas del Juego", a name that includes their art works between 2008 and 2014.
 
Indeed, the game that offers us Madoz with 124 images, is a game without more rules than elegance, mastery of photo language and a sharp and precise idea, with the naturalness and sense of humor that characterizes the photographer's work.
 
 
Stopped clocks, caged clouds, hands with spinning words, tributes to Magritte,... all his black and white photograph on baryta paper, is exposed almost complete for the first time and it speaks of a more mature Madoz, without losing their conceptual references but expanding his personal research on the language of objects and including things like animals, texts or even drawing as tool and trigger for new ideas.
The exhibition Chema Madoz 2008-2014 Las Reglas del Juego, is presented on the occasion of granting to the artist the Photographic Cultural Prize of the Community of Madrid 2012. This exhibition is part of the Official Selection of the International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts, PHotoEspaña 2015. In parallel, and to bring the work of Chema Madoz to everyone, the workshop visits "Poets in black and white " aimed at families with children between 6 and 12 years and Saturday in June and July.
