Tara Fallaux - The Love Line

The Love Line is a universal portrait about how love blossoms between two people and the inescapable miscommunication that gets in the way. In the sound installation, podcast series and the film installation, you discover anonymous love stories.

Photographer Tara Fallaux uses a variety of media to evoke love’s ultimate loneliness and tries to fathom it, based on people’s true confessions of love. You can listen to their stories on your own phone. Expect recognition, emotion and wonder – and a portrait of love.

The Love Line can be seen from November 26 to December 19, 2021 in the Portrait Gallery Studio at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam. Openinghours Gallery: 26, 27, 28 November and 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 December from 1pm – 4pm.

For Anna

Work from the series Songs for Soprano by Jitske Schols has been showcased at FotoFestival Naarden 2019. Together with the RKD-Netherlands Institute for Art History, we created a Photo Story about Schols’s series dedicated to 19th Century soprano Anna Witsen. Our Photo Story was part of the exhibition at Bastion Oranje in Naarden-Vesting.
