Talisa Lallai’s work combines her own photographic and film material with found footage from private slide collections, vintage magazines and convolutes of commercial photographs. Rather than capturing a reality, it is the subjective perception of a place that is of key importance to her. Lallai’s pictorial language is based on real and imaginary journeys, where she particularly focuses on idealisations and stereotypes of the South in general and what ideas and images it evokes in us.
