Armando Andrade Tudela

Devenus Celebres accompanied Armando Andrade Tudela’s 2009 exhibition at Ikon.

Armando Andrade Tudela works across a range of media, tracing the flow of objects, images and materials between different aspects of culture such as architecture, social or political movements and history.

Born in Lima, Andrade Tudela trained first in his native Peru and then later at the Royal College of Art, London and the Jan Van Eyck Academy, Maastricht. This experience, of moving between the influences and artistic cultures of Latin America and Europe was formative to his practice. As a result he chooses to explore various manifestations of broader cultural ideas within more localised contexts, questioning particularly the history and processes of modernity. By treating found imagery as recovered fragments that, if reconfigured, might open up new ideas across history and geography, Andrade Tudela creates a process he calls ‘retroactive deprogramming’; using traces of the past to allow new, imaginative possibilities for the future.

The image is a silkscreen reproduction of a feature in a celebrity magazine that considers the possible futures of well known figures.
