LUCIA TALLOVÁ

LUCIA TALLOVÁ

Tallová’s work is at the crossroads of various media. She works on photographs and objects that she assembles and deploys in space. The manipulations and themes she approaches create a new link, both material and poetic, between the elements on display. Her installations always respond to a common methodology: objects, paintings, old photographs, collages and albums are meticulously arranged on a system of wooden shelves. Far from being a simple support, these structures determine each composition. The protocol is rigorously applied to each intervention while responding to different spatial constraints: new forms are born according to the characteristics of the environment.

Lucia Tallová was born in 1985 in Bratislava (Slovakia). She lives and works in Bratislava. She is a leading figure of the emergent Slovakian art scene.
