Saudade

Lizzy Lale Tollemache

 

︎ angiolettolizfilm


In Saudade, Lizzy Tollemache focuses on themes of identity, nostalgia and displacement. The body of work is an exploration of place and belonging, attempting to visualise and make tangible the all consuming sense of detachment and unfamiliarity through having such an ambiguous heritage.

Through a mixture of still life, landscape and physical artwork, she forces an anthropological gaze inwards, examining where and what it feels like to be at home; seeking sanctuary in scenes of trailing shadows, light reflections and nature.

Unable to make sense of her emotions the title’s ambiguous translation from Portuguese expresses the ‘melancholic longing or nostalgia’ for her past and unknown history.
