Carla TABORA

1965, Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
Lives and works in Barcelona
Represented by TOBE Gallery since 2014
  • “My late work is about personal territories. I photograph my surroundings to create a metaphor for the invisible. I feel like a nomad, in a life where space is interiorised. I create a personal geography intertwining landscapes from different parts of the globe.”

     

    Carla Tabora, an artist whose life has been spent in a variety of lands and languages, has produced a body of work that comes across as a dialogue between different parts of the world. Through photography and painting, she has built up a narrative of subtlety, rhythm and luminosity, akin to that of a poem. The central metaphor of that poem is the tree in its representation of life. Words reverberate round this multilingual, mestizo text, echoing through the naturalness of all these solidly structured images.
