KOCHI: Alliance Francaise Cochin annexe in association with Orthic Creative Centre, Kochi, will present ‘Surfaces et Profondeurs’, an exhibition of photographs and poems by Pascal Bernard and Anupama Raju at Orthic Creative Centre from May 14 to 23.

The inauguration will be followed by reading of poetry by Anupama Raju.

An Indo-French project, the show explores La  Rochelle through the  poetry  of Anupama Raju, a writer based in Thiruvananthapuram and the photography of Pascal Bernard,  a  photographer from La Rochelle, France. This collaboration is supported by the Centre Intermondes, La Rochelle and Alliance Francaise de Trivandrum.

Though the project is an exploration of depths of the city, La Rochelle, through its people, its traditions, heritage and culture, surfaces and depths can be representative of any city.

Pascal and Anupama had earlier collaborated on a project called, ‘Une Ville, Un Lieu, Une Personne’, a photo-poetic exploration of Pondicherry and its people.

The exhibition had toured France and the Alliance Francaise network in India in 2012.

The poems of ‘Surfaces and Depths’ were written during a writing residency that Anupama Raju was part of at the Centre Intermondes in La Rochelle in 2012. The poems are accompanied by the photographs of Pascal Bernard residing in La Rochelle.

The exhibition has touched Thiruvananthapuram, Goa, Hyderabad and Bangalore before reaching Kochi.
