Leila is the third part in Christopher Ulutupu’s The Romantic Picturesque: The Postcard Trilogy
A series that explores landscape, photography, and the construction of colonial narratives. Responding to early 1900s landscape photography and ‘postcard’ tourism, Ulutupu’s earlier work looked at exoticised depictions of Pacific people disseminated throughout the western world. His practice seeks to re-contextualise these stereotypes and re-imagine them through video and performance, offering new ways of exploring the effects of colonisation and diaspora.
