About the Book
Eugenia Berti Lindblad’s work is the starting point, the silent manifesto, of a project titled Eclipse9, with at its core the retrieval, the re-invention of the aura. Freedom from the trap, as already stated. But also as an aesthetic program under the aegis of Walter Benjamin. Giving back to aesthetic creation its capability of aura denying technically and rejecting conceptually the infinite reproducibility of a work of art. Through a long trial as exile on earth and in his/her body, Hen is freed from his/her entrapment and retrieves his/her destiny of a unique, unrepeatable individual. Through her artistic project of irreproducible works, Eugenia Berti Lindblad follows her own freedom and her identity, hoping to be irreproducible.
Ce n’est qu’un début, was heard in the streets of Paris some fifty years ago, when it appeared that imagination had overcome the corridors of power. (from the foreword of Prof. Enrico Pozzi)
The idea was born from the huge passion for Photography by wondering on the fate of it in a country known for its technological leadership; from the concern about the consequences of an exclusively digital approach heralded online; from the observation of the irrepressible reproducibility of images dispensed on the web; from the reaction to "photographic mannerism" and the mere technical canons of perfection of Photoshop; from the need to redefine the concept of "Uniqueness” and "irreproducibility "of photographic icons.
