Talissa Mehringer is a German/Mexican multimedia artist currently based in Berlin. Daughter of anthropologists, she was fortunate to travel extensively as a child. At the age of six, she was initiated into the Canela tribe of Brazil during a village ceremony surrounded by the lush green of the Amazon. Later her family would move to Tanzania where she was allowed to witness and participate in ceremonial festivities of the Maasai people. The beautiful sound of their singing and terracotta-red dyed fabrics, colorful beaded jewelry and elaborate hairstyles were incredibly inspiring to her young mind. These early life experiences ignited a deep passion for adventure, history and quest for knowledge. The surreal + theatrical style which has become her trademark was developed while studying film and media arts in New York. Her photography work is cinematic in that the pages of her books unfold frame by frame weaving visual narratives through phantasmagoric spaces and environments. Her work has been exhibited at festivals + galleries internationally across the U.S. and Europe.
