Tara Fallaux

Perfect Pearl

The main subject is about chasing love or “the concept of love” seen from a female perspective. What we desire or what we think we should desire. The story touches on existential solitude, the makeability of life and fleeting online personalities; how to emancipate and to find our own identity amidst the (lonely) crowd. Despite its cultural definitions and particularities, love is a universal desire that allowed her to identify with these Chinese women in their early twenties. Her friendships resulted in a collaboration where she interweaved her own poetic observations with the thoughts and feelings of her young Chinese friends. Pursuing your “perfect future dream” feels like a dangerous game. Won't you always be disappointed if you keep chasing the “perfect picture”? How each individual shapes his life and expresses her existence is a source of lasting fascination for Tara Fallaux.
