Everyone Carries A Shadow

Lale Tara opens her new solo show "Everyone Carries a Shadow" at x-ist. The shooting of the twelve photographs that made up the series took place in different, abandoned spaces in Hungary. The scenes, written and directed by Tara, are constructed by human sized plastic surrogates. Through this replica, which appears as a manifest of her secondary existence, Lale Tara touches upon the interaction between the different artistic media and deliberately distorts the indexicality of photography.
