Cairo Taxilogue (2008) - Palestinian Artist LARISSA SANSOUR

This project consists of four frame grabs and one movie poster for the imaginary film Cairo Taxilogue.

Based on actual conversations with Cairo taxi drivers, these staged photographs constitute quasi-glitzy re-enactments of  taxi rides presented as colourful and kitschy images superimposed over street scenes from the megacity.

The technicolour images and the overacting of the protagonists in the photographs augment the discrepancy between social and political insight and the current state of affairs.

Cairo Taxilogue is shot on location in Cairo with the help of local actors and taps into the currents leading up to recent events in the country. - LS
