Yo No Hablo Español or ‘I don’t speak Spanish’ is artist Christopher Morris’s latest exhibition – a photographic exploration of the artist’s journeys though Central North Mexico.
Setting out through the less travelled part of the country – riddled with mountains, dustbowls and cactus-punctured streets – Morris’s medium format photographs document places “somewhat ravaged by the elements but most importantly proud,” as he puts it. “A rugged, beautiful and proud Mexico and its welcoming in habitants.”
Yo No Hablo Español is accompanied by a limited edition, 50-page book of the same name, featuring further colour and black and white photographs published by Izrock Pressings.
The exhibition is the first show for the newly opened contemporary exhibition space, Gallery 2010. The gallery is a non-profit, curator-run initiative, aiming to support the creative development and experimentation of its exhibiting artists.
Yo No Hablo Espanol opens on March 8 (6-8pm) and runs ‘til March 11.
